Christine of Skeinny Dipping and designer Bristol Ivy have teamed up for Bristol’s latest pattern. Rillmark — an elegant pi shawl that depicts, in lace form, that spot where the water meets the shore — uses two skeins of Christine’s Alpaca/Silk Sport, a blend of 80% superfine alpaca and 20% silk. The yarn is available to preorder in the Skeinny Dipping Etsy shop.
Sue of Invictus Yarns has teamed up with the ultra-talented Casapinka and created kits for Bronwyn’s new Koi Pond shawl, a gorgeous use of a gradient. Each kit contains one set of six 100-yard mini skeins and one 400-yard skein in a contrasting color.
Here’s an unusual collaboration between an accessory maker and a dyer: Laura used artwork created by one of her favorite dyers, Julia of Pandia’s Jewels, to create bags, cases and stitch markers inspired by the film Labyrinth. They will be available to preorder today starting at 9 a.m. Pacific Time.
If the yarn above — the second installment of The Golden Skein’s 2016 Power of 3 yarn club, dyed by Eden Cottage Yarns, Dublin Dye and Triskelion Yarn and Fibre — gets your heart racing, then you’ll want to mark your calendar. Sign-ups for the third club installment open July 1.
Ah, cupcakes and yarn, another winning combination. Sunshine of My Mama Knits has dyed up Cupcake Mini Skein Sets, a lovely pastel rainbow available with or without “sprinkles.” The sets of a dozen 10-gram mini skeins are available on a Superwash DK or 75% Superwash Merino/25% nylon sock base.
