When ordering 6 oz you will receive one and one half 4 oz braids, not one long 6 oz braid.
Spectrum was one half of my November 2011 Mixed Blessings club offering- the other half was undyed variegated brown and ecru BFL. Fiber bases pictured: variegated brown and ecru BFL (Bluefaced Leicester). This gives you a general idea of how the colors will look on the various fiber base types. How will MY fiber selection look? -Superwash (SW) bases: The colors will appear bright with distinct edges and some white. -Non-superwash single ingredient bases (Falkland, Merino, Polwarth and BFL): The colors will have softer edges and blend slightly where they meet, with less or no white, depending on the colorway. -Bamboo and Tencel blends: The wool portion will take the dye as usual, but the bamboo and tencel are not affected by acid dyes- the bamboo appears as silvery streaks and the tencel as glossy, translucent streaks. -Silk blends: These will look much like their non-silk containing counterparts, but with a bit of extra delight (depth of color and sheen) where the silk fibers sparkle with color. -VBFL (variegated natural brown and ecru) Bluefaced Leicester: This base allows for a lovely depth of color, with interesting, subtle heathering in your yarn. -Panda (SW Merino/Bamboo/Nylon 60/30/10): The brightness and whiteness of superwash Merino, with the silvery streaks of bamboo. The nylon takes the dye really well, too, similarly to the SW Merino.
All fiber bases are commercial combed top preparations, hand dyed by Ginny of FatCatKnits. Colorways are dyed according to recipes and processes developed to produce the most consistently repeatable colorways. That said, this is a HUMAN operation, and you must expect some degree of variation between batches, and even from braid to braid.
Past Club Colorways are dyed to order, and ship within 4-9 days of ordering. (SALE items may take longer, due to larger volume of purchases). If you are wondering about the status of your order, just ask :) Email me (Ginny) at FatCatKnits@gmail.com with ANY questions.
Please feel free to request to combine orders from this website and FatCatKnits on Etsy. Just complete your purchases at both locations and then email me at FatCatKnits@gmail.com or convo me at Etsy. I will refund any excess shipping over $1 when I ship your orders. When ordering fibers which aredyed to order please note- all items will be shipped when the last ones in your combined orders are ready to go.
