A Heavenly Update is going to be our first Shop Update of 2020, and as the name says, it is dedicated to our luscious Cashmere yarn.
A Heavenly Blend is the heart of our yarn range, not only because it contains Giulia’s own homegrown cashmere fibre, but also because setting up her goat farm was the reason why we met a few years ago during a handspinning workshops, and that was the turning point to set up our small business in exclusive, traceable Italian yarn.
Shop update is set for SATURDAY February 1, at 6.00pm CEST
We put in the shop our full range of A Heavenly Blend hand-dyed palette, with two new colorways: ZAFFERANO — a deep dark caramel — and SCIROCCO — a cold slate blue. The undyed base is a light beige-grey that yields very peculiar shades once dyed. Each batch is fairly unique because we apply several layers of colors, to get the perfect deep hues of our range.
Icing on the cake, we dedicate this update to some new speckled and variegated variations overdyed on some of our shades:
The cold lilac base of VIOLETTE turned into LUNA, with sparkles of ochre and deep fuchsia.
The elegant peachy AMARETTI became TITANIA which is dotted of dark teal greens and burnt orange.
The watery ACQUAMARINA was enlightened with rusty yellows and vibrant pinks and purples, developing into CORALLI
