Remains of the Day Hand Spun

The beauty of this is that I have not really spun yarn in over a year. Last night I took home my wheel knowing full well that my Mom’s cat was going to see this as an opportunity to get killed…by me. She’s so adorable. I just think she was definitely a border collie in her past life by the way she hers my hats and fiber around the house.

So the first of my hand spun yarn is from the yarn color way “Remains of the Day” formerly known as 6:14 pm. This is Jill’s baby. We tried to get a more sophisticated spin by keeping our color ways as simple on the fiber as possible. The end goal: less wild card and more modeled. There’s still some flecky and stripey stuff going on, but that is the nature of the spin beast. Next time I will dot my i’s and make sure to align the lights with the darks.

For the Love of our Hand Dyed

We took a small trip out to the Woods off Aliso Viejo Pkwy. The boys were worn out but the effort was worth it.

The Sheepwalk Fiber Arts Studio

sheep•walk (noun British) – a tract of land on which sheep are pastured. Origin: 1580-90

Sheepwalk hand dyed yarn and fiber is a collaboration of storytelling, color work and sometimes a little silliness. Only two skeins are alike because we dye in small batches. Our inspiration comes from our daily life experiences, our imaginations and a desire to bring color to everyone’s life. Each skein is measured to suit the most popular patterns out there.

Fingering = 600 yards
Sport = 500 yards
Worsted = 400 yards

Retail = $32.00 per skein

We go the extra yardage to make sure you have just the right amount to make your favorite shawl, pair of socks, texting gloves and more. Our favorite thing is to take the left overs, mix and match them to get one-of-kind garments. We do custom dye but for in store customers only. Sometimes, though, we do get our best color ideas from our customers who live far, far away: Britt’s Delight, Standwald, The Little Mermaid, Forbidden Flowers…Your feedback is always welcome.
