Dyed In The Wool
1. (of textiles) dyed before being formed into cloth.
2. (idiomatic) firmly established in a person's beliefs or habits; deeply ingrained in the nature of a person or thing.
After a decade of operating exclusively as a handspinnery, we set our sights on finding a way to merge the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with a more efficiently produced millspun yarn. Dyed In The Wool is that yarn.
Spincycle's mill is located on Queen Street in Bellingham, Washington, and runs five days a week. They dye in-house as well, in the same fashion they used to dye when we were handspinning. Their pots are bigger, though! Because they dye the fiber before it's spun, colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole.
The color transitions are slow and dramatic, and each skein is unique. When planning larger projects requiring more than one skein, allow for nuance.
