I am delighted to share a guest dyer from my Stitches West 2020 collection: A Sea of Stones. She's a Latinx maker who dyes gorgeous, semi-solid non-superwash yarn. The collection she developed for Stitches West are all inspired by Le Petit Prince.

Watercolor speckles, dyed by hand in San Francisco

I call my style of hand-dyeing watercolor speckles. Each skein has multiple layers of color that blend, shift and merge, with intentional wee tiny random dots of intense color. When dyeing, I focus on what the final fabric will look like. My goal is a fabric that may look semi-solid from a distance but, when viewed closely, shows a depth of subtle color differences.

There will be variations in color intensity and placement. I think that’s part of what makes each skein perfect – they’re not identical. If you will be using more than 1 skein in your project, alternate skeins to blend any color differences.
