Who is my favourite Indie Dyer?

Today I wanted to write about one of my favourite Indie Dyers who comes from Hereford, England, United Kingdom and her name is Kate Selene.

I stumbled across her when I realised my love for Indie Dyers and was searching through Etsy.

I instantly fell in love with her wool as the bright colours drew me in straight away.  I immediately purchased her Pop Fizzle big bundle-Sock yarn/4ply – dyed to order -500 grams of super wash merino wool.

So after a very patient (and sometimes not so patient) 5 week wait for my wool, it finally arrived and I can tell you I was over the moon with joy.  The wool is even better in real life.  So soft and squishy and the colours just pop through and I just love how she manages to do this.  Please note that the she states that her delivery time is between 4-6 weeks (depending on where you live in the world).  The reason for this is that Kate is a one woman indie dyer who does a fantastic job of producing fabulous wool.  Trust me it is well worth the wait.

I have made a couple of items from my purchase and the wool is such a joy to knit.  Was quite surprised when I first cast on with it.

I used it in some striped socks and some stripes fingerless gloves.  The gloves are for when we head to Japan in January.  Now that is a story for another blog, so stay tuned…
