"Oh, you're in my blood like holy wine
You taste so bitter and so sweet
Oh I could drink a case of you darling
And I would still be on my feet."
From 'A Case of You', Joni Mitchell, 1971
One of Joni's most well known, and most widely covered songs, "A Case of You" is very close to my heart and is one of the first songs I attempted to play on my guitar, yikes! The song still moves me. In this colourway I pay tribute to the blue of her love and heartache, the mohogany and tan of her and James Taylor's instruments and the burgundy of that bittersweet case of holy wine.
This colourway is part of the Goddess of Folk collection, check out some of the visual inspiration here.
Small batch hand-dyed.
Dreamy 2ply yarn comprised of 74% Baby Suri Alpaca and 26% Mulberry Silk. This yarn is buttery soft and sumptuous and perfect for people with skin sensitivity to Mohair. Use on its own for lace-weight projects such as shawls or hold two strands together or one strand of Suri Silk Lace and another of a different base such as 4ply Silk/Merino to add a touch of elegant fluff.
300m per 50g (or 600m per 100g)
Non-superwash, 2ply / Heavy Lace Weight yarn.
Small batch, hand-dyed yarn from my little studio in Lower Hutt, Aotearoa/New Zealand. Everything, from sourcing the yarn to shipping, is done with love and care by hand. The nature of hand-dyed yarn is that no two skeins are exactly the same, creating beautifully nuanced colourways.
I source finest quality, fully traceable and mulesing-free, ethically, sustainably farmed yarns from New Zealand and abroad.
The dyes I use are made in Australia and New Zealand. They are acid dyes that are used for dyeing protein-based fibre (such as wool and silk). I take every care to use only the quantities necessary to create my colourways. This means that the dyepot is fully exhausted when the dyeing is complete.
