Shop update!

Sorry for the long delay, I had a tree hit my house and they’re only now actually fixing the damage. Sorry about the blog going down, but (with some fun digging through files) I managed to get it back up! Turns out they moved my MYSQL server without letting me know or moving the pointers.

  1. You dye and spin some lovely fluff! I really enjoyed reading your chemistry posts too and I was wondering if you take requests to explain the chemistry behind something (it’s dyeing/spinning related;)? I understand if you are too busy of course. (And wow, a tree on your house?! Hope it gets fixed quickly!)

    Have a great day!

  2. Awesome, thanks for taking the time to answer:)
    My question is this: in the combed tops that I have dyed, the darker/more saturated colors always feel different from the lighter or undyed parts of the top. The light areas feel smooth and kind of silky slippery when spinning (like it does when it’s not dyed yet). But the areas with dark/deep colors (on the same piece of top) have a less smooth feel. Is there an explanation for this? And mostly, is there a way to prevent this? I have mostly dyed 100% merino but also noticed it with some other types of top.
    I could not find any info about this online but also was not sure what to look for. Maybe it’s just a weird thing that only happens to me haha, but I thought if anyone knows it’s you:)

    Have a great day!
