handspun / dimriv
Dimriv (dawn): you can see a frosty early morning in this steel blue shimmery yarn.
Alpaca and silk serve to reflect the indigo colour in a very sophisticated way – ensuring this thick and thin drapey yarn will be turned into something very beautiful. There is another skein of this yarn weighing approx. 35g. Please email us or leave a message in the box contained within 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.
