We are a small batch hand dyeing operation. When naming our yarns we look for lovely word associations, just to add a little bit of flavor to the mix. It's our own special type of synesthesia, an overlapping of the senses. We hope you enjoy it and maybe learn a few more colorful words to add to your vocabulary while adding unique hand dyed yarn to your repertoire.

You can also take a photo and edit it to see what happens when you change the hue, contrast or saturation. I use PhotoShop but a free alternative is Gimp available here for PC or Mac.

Pinterest is also a lot of fun and inspiration. There are several boards devoted to color. Find us there as venessa427 and knitgal.
