Darkenin’ (twilight): squishy, squooshy heaven in cashmere and merino. 

 

The height of utter decadence, this purchase might be the most self-indulgent act you’ve enjoyed for a while.  

 

The rich colours change subtly throughout the yarn resulting in an overall impression of the day hiding in the evening, the sky reflecting the last daylight glimmer of the sea.  We have another skein of this yarn weighing apprx 130g.  Please email us or leave a comment in the box on the web order form if you are interested.
 
This yarn forms part of the collection 'of a Hoswick Sea'.

 

A Hoswick Sea is many things.  It’s affected by the weather, the light, the season and of course our own mood.  The tidal movement is comfortingly constant, the sea breathes life into our village.  It dominates our senses especially when it is wild.  The Hoswick Sea is our rock, especially in these difficult and uncertain times.

 

Always drawn to dying with indigo vats – I now see that I made subconcious connections between the myriad of colours which emerge from the pigment and the sea. This is my attempt to pay homage to it by honouring it’s everchanging shades of blue.
