We did it!

We survived another spectacular weekend in West Friendship MD.

Year after year we drive home in awe of the reception we receive at the MDSW. We know that there are countless choices of vendors to choose from, and we sincerely appreciate that you choose to shop with us. We cannot say it enough – thank you, thank you, thank you, for all of your support, encouragement, and enthusiasm for what we do.

With a couple days of recuperation under our belts, it is time to head back into the studio, both to finish the drywall and get back to the business of dyeing! OH, and unpack the trailer, photograph some inventory, and refill the online shop!

Stay tuned for an announcement about the next shop update…

Just in case you missed it, we thought we would share some pictures from our  Flickr and Instagram stream leading up to the festival:

22016Update

 

With the New York Sheep & Wool Festival just weeks away we wanted to share some details on the yarns we will be featuring at this year’s festival. With three styles of dye application (in addition to our collection of semi-solids) being offered, we thought it best to share lots of pictures to demonstrate how each technique presents in the skein and ultimately knits up! Featured below is ‘The Cat’s Pyjamas’ colorway.

The first dye application showcased is what most of our customers are familiar with. In the past we have simply referred to it as hand dyed yarn but with the introduction of new dye applications we will be referring to this technique as ‘Palindrome Paints’ in all future communications. The dye is applied across the skein and results in a palindrome pattern, thus the name. Sock knitters often, but not always, encounter a spiral pooling pattern when casting on 64 stitches on a US size 1 needle. The sample show below was knit from Laura’s (of The Knit Girllls fame) Afterthought Heel Sock pattern, a free pattern that can be found on Ravelry along with a spectacular tutorial on knitting an afterthought heel.

The next application is a new introduction to the ITW line-up and is simply being named ‘Handpainted’ and it is exactly what it sounds like. Our ‘Handpainted’ line is a direct result of you, our fabulous customer, requesting a yarn with extended runs of color. The dye is applied across the skein in even intervals that results in longer stretches of intense color saturation. The sample sock shown below illustrates that when knit to the same specifications of our ‘Palindrome Paints’ sample, it behaves in a very similar fashion, with one distinct difference; the colors appear to stack rather than pool in a spiral pattern.

Last but certainly not least is the introduction of our new ‘Kettle Dyed’ yarn. Breaking free from the restrictions of handpaints, when knit up, this new technique results in a fabric with little to no pooling. This new-to-ITW technique captures the full spectrum of possible color blends in each and every colorway. We are super excited about the limitless possibilities of this technique brings to the ITW lineup!

Words aside, we promised pictures! All of the images below showcase the aforementioned techniques in the same line up: Palindrome Paints, Handpainted, and Kettle Dyed. Aside from the first mosaic, all the images can be opened and expanded for better viewing. Enjoy!

We are delighted to announce our newest product line…

Kettle Dyed Yarn!

Dyed in small batches, each skein of  our new ‘Kettle Dyed’ yarn is a unique creation that, unlike our current line of ‘Palindrome Paints’ and soon to be released ‘Handpaints’ yarn, is specifically designed to minimize pooling, stacking and flashing.

While the “BIG Reveal” is scheduled for the fall festival season, we will be featuring the colorways sampled below in a shop update scheduled for Saturday, August 29th at 10:00AM EST.

We are insanely excited about the newest addition to our line-up and we hope you love them as much as we do! So without further delay…
