NEW! We love our Northwest indie dyers and are delighted to bring you a new-to-us dyer, Kasteyl Lukes, owner of Seattle Sky Dyeworks. Kasteyl is a California native who found herself calling Seattle "Home" in 2012. She finds solace from the (almost) never ending gray in the riots of color found in her yarns and accessories. Kettle dyeing is her specialty and creates a beautiful depth of color that is difficult to reproduce.
Temporum is fingering weight yarn 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon. It is smooth, silky, and warm. This yarn is perfect for socks, but luxurious enough for any next to skin project.

Color descriptions from the dyer:
4pm: The Pacific Northwest is great. Being from California, everyone always asks me if I like it up here. I do, but I miss the light. Whenever I mention the name of this yarn to a local, or they read the tag, there's an audible chuckle. No one likes it when it's dark by 4pm.
MIA Sunshine: The 2021 Pantone colors of the year. Also the fleeting glow of sunshine as the Northwest clouds roll in.
Murder Yarn: Murder Yarn, now with 50% more murder!
Siren: A Siren calls, her voice calling out to the soldiers on the ships, calling them to the rocks and their deaths.
SODO: For forty hours a week, I was an accountant in SODO. I work in an old converted refrigeration warehouse. While it has been mostly converted into office space with the standard commercial carpet, our hallways are still beautiful brick. They have been worn smooth over the decades of wear and range from bright red to deep, chocolate brown.
