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…
