Colour Description

"We are stardust, we are golden, and we got to get ourselves back to the garden."

From 'Woodstock', Joni Mitchell, 1970

Inspired by Joni Mitchell's song 'Woodstock', let this colourway transport you to Yasgur's farm in 1969 with it's earthy mix of fuchsia, tan, ink, denim and gold. Think guitars, jeans, stage lights and a lot of beads.

Take a listen.

Part of the Goddess of Folk collection, you can check out some of the visual inspiration here.

Small batch hand-dyed.

Yarn Description

This luxury, plush yarn is a blend of 50% fine Merino and 50% pure Mulberry Silk.  Colours really 'pop' on this base and naturally it is unbelievably soft and smooth.

212m per 100g

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.
