Special edition avocado-dyed Islington – today!

January 27, 2017

Here is another Kettle Krew mailing list exclusive!

I’ve naturally dyed a special-edition batch of 10 skeins of Islington – British Bluefaced Leicester / Silk fingering –  with avocado this time!

Live on the shop tonight – these naturally-dyed beauties go on sale today at 6pm GMT for all Kettle Krew subscribers ONLY!

If you’ve not yet signed up, do so before 11 am and get a chance at these 10 exclusive skeins of limited edition avocado-dyed Islington, British Bluefaced Leicester / Silk fingering!

No mordants are used in this process as the tannins from the avocado are enough to set the dye, making this one of the most natural, least toxic dyeing processes available.

[Above, clockwise from bottom left – Icicle, avodado-dyed, Light Squirrelly, Squirrelly, Nutkin, Old Smoke and  Blighty]

These skeins were cooked in the dye creating the luminous barely-pink blush hue with a hint of peach.

You’ll get your password for the listing at 11am this morning. Write it down and be ready at 6 tonight to get your gorgeous avocado-blush Islington skeins tonight before they sell out. Get them before they sell out… The last batch of 20 avocado-dyed Baskerville went in less than an hour!
