Throughout the month of February I have challenged myself to share a new colourway every day with a specific prompt for the inspiration. The list of prompts comes from a previous year’s Inktober challenge called Creature Feature.
Day Eighteen is Butterfly + Bat. This colourway takes inspiration from red species of butterfly such as Red Admiral and Scarlet Peacock. I wanted a vampiric vibe so have speckled red and grey/black for that look as well as some brown speckling to reference the brown furry bodies of real bats (who can be quite cute when given the chance).
This is a ready to ship listing that will ship within 1-2 weeks.
My yarn is hand-dyed using professional acid dyes. Due to the nature of hand-dyeing no two skeins will be alike however I do take evert effort to ensure colour ways are consistent. If you are looking for a greater quantity and want to ensure best chances of consistency please get in touch to arrange a custom order. I would recommend this if ordering quantities greater than 3.
I ensure each skein is washed after dyeing to ensure water runs clear, little dye running may remain however so I do recommend you take care when washing any finished objects. I recommend a gentle wool wash and cold water, do not rub the yarn aggressively as this may felt it unintentionally. Reshape finished objects whilst damp and lay flat.
