"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 famous, and most widely covered songs, "A Case of You" is very close to my heart for many reasons including being one of the first songs I attempted to play on my guitar, yikes! The song's beauty 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.
Small batch hand-dyed.
100% Merino single ply yarn. This is a fingering weight weight yarn, so is similar in size to most 4ply yarns however Merino Singles have a distinctive and beautiful twist to them, allowing colours really shine on them and giving a gorgeous drape. Excellent for scarves, shawls, jumpers, socks... you name it.

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.
