Two new #tarot collection colours available from TODAY at the Virtual @walthamabbeywool Show #WAWS2021 ..
This is the second .. #thestar .. a blended-speckle affair with plenty of the gorgeous 100% Highland 4ply ‘Zebra’, with its twisted black and white strands, left in its natural state ..
The Star is the 18th card of the Major Arcana, and represents hope, and shining promise - and I won’t need to remind anyone of the significance of these things at the present time.
When I drew the card (on an IG LIVE chat with Bex @thepigeonsnest!) I saw GOLD - and proceeded to explore colour ideas to recreate the tones and brightness needed to bring out its metallic hues - I settled on a low immersion technique, speckling dye into the dye-bath in layers and allowing it to ‘mix & move where it needs to’, and am super happy with the abstract gold result.
As for #judgement, I’ll also be showing on Facebook LIVE at 1pm TODAY!
This collection is only available on my new 100% Highland 'Zebra' base - which has beautiful black and white yarn twisted together, producing a natural speckle effect. The yarn is 27 micron and will make deliciously warm shawls or socks!
*This will be a repeated colourway, but due to the techniques used in the dye process, colours will vary slightly throughout the hanks and between batches. Alternate hanks from different dye batches when working up larger projects.
