Dyed-to-Order: Chicken Yarn!

Dyed-to-order listings are now closed for these colorways, but read on to hear all about this fun collaboration, the Subscriber Color Inspiration series!

The reaction to the Subscriber Color Inspiration yarn I dyed last week has been fabulous.  Thank you! Originally, I thought that this would be a Lucky Pot color, here and gone. Except, I totally forgot I wrote the recipe down! I’m so used to tracking my recipes, I did it out of habit. Which was a lucky circumstance indeed.

Since I found that I actually DID write down the recipe for this colorway, I’ve been rethinking my plans for the Subscriber Color Inspo yarns (yes, it’s definitely a work-in-progress). I’ve decided they’ll be colors in-between my regular, repeating colorways, and the new one-of-a-kind, never-to-be-seen-again Lucky Pots. I’ll do is a special dyed-to-order update for them, once each month. I don’t want to dye “too much” of any of these colors, but I also don’t want to not dye enough. Because, if a person wants yarn, a person should have yarn, amiright?!

These Subscriber Inspired colors will have a limited ordering window,  only available for one week after the color is published. Then they truly will be gone forever. Sayonara, baby.

This month’s colors will be dyed on Aurora, my fingering weight 100% superwash merino single ply yarn. Future colors may be dyed on additional weights – what do you think about more yarn base options? I could, potentially, dye the special Inspo color on 2 or 3 different bases … maybe … still thinking this through. So any thoughts or opinions you have are very welcome! Leave me a comment if you’d like!

Dyed-to-order listings are now closed for these colorways. Thanks to everyone who ordered! This was a big success, and I hope you all love your yarn!

If you’d like to play along on future Subscriber Color Inspirations, make sure you’re subscribed to my newsletter (there’s also a link on the upper right of this blog), and then send me a photo that inspires you before the end of each month. I delete all photos at the end of the month, so you can always send me the same photo again if it’s not selected. And, don’t forget, the person who sends me the photo I choose will get one free skein of their special color!
