Well, lots of experiments with the iris green, I will sit down and make a clearer chart of the different renditions, I ended up with 4 different saturations of green, learned tons, on to yellow..and black and white and... . . #makingink #naturalcolor #plantbasedcolor #plantink #dyestudio #irisgreen #process
Strange colors in there. Simmering some color from iris blossoms (yes, there has been a stash of blue iris in my freezer for some time as I read that in the Middle Ages they used iris blossoms to make green paint, and I finally got to that...) but the color, the surface has this deep, almost Prussian blue cast, but dip a brush and you get green. . . #makingink #iris #color #green #mysteriesofcolor #dyestudio #naturalcolor
Just to let you know - contrary to popular belief, we do actually still have Nateby 4ply Mini Skeins left from Friday’s update. 😆 AND you do still have time before the last post before Christmas (UK only). This lovely dark green is Cedar. 😍 —— I hope you’re having a cosy day; it’s icy cold, wet and windy here. 🥶🔥 —— #edencottageyarns #yarn #sparkly #knittersofravelry #wool

Its all about the merlots, burgundies, and deep plum shades in tonights shop update! This one is a yak/silk sport weight blend. The silk picks up the color and glows.. and the yak softens and grounds the color with the natural browns coming through...love this yarn!🍇🍷🎆🔮 #merlot #burgundyyarn #wineshades #yaksilk #burgundylove #knittersofinstagram #yarnlove #dyestudio

This week has been looooong. I am working my ECY elves so hard at the moment - I really couldn’t do much without them. Anyway, that’s why this post is a bit last-minute: we have an update going live at 7am UK time tomorrow (Friday the 14th)! It’s got the ever-popular Titus 4ply (shown here in Faded Bloom) and sparkly Nateby 4ply Mini skeins in it. Plus something else new and fun which I’ll tell you about later. ;) If you’d like to see a full preview of all the colours they’re on the Facebook event page for this update (just search for Eden Cottage Yarns) and on Flickr. 💕 —— #edencottageyarns #yarn #titus4ply #handdyed #wool

Over on the ECY blog: @sparkles1284 and I put together a gift guide! And no, it’s not just “buy yarn”.. although that’s always good advice, of course. Head to the website and tap the blog link to have a read if you’re in need of inspiration or need to send someone a nudge in the right direction. 🥰 —— #edencottageyarns #yarn #wool
Happy Wednesday! . . Toronto! I’m Packing and shipping @eweknitto ‘s order today; a giant yarny box is headed your way ♥️ . . I’m off to seal up the order and drop it off at the post office and then take advantage of this sunlight for some pictures and working on the last few dye pans for a big (tons of new colours! And a new base!) update happening next Tuesday! 💕
Gradient love! Bangalore is a gorgeous mix of colors. Carded twice, for an amazing blend. 19.5 micron merino, soft playful siri silk, and a hint of lustrous nylon. I add nylon for strength, and shimmer. Hand dyed and carded, what would you spin? 3.4oz single batt.

It's the first dye day for @edinyarnfest. The Countess is dyeing speckles, Mia is embracing the colour green and Haydn is banned from colourways involving red and aqua. . . . #countessablaze #indiedyer #indiedyersofinstagram #dyestudio #Ravelry #dye #northernquarter #Manchester #yarn #knitting #crochet #edinburghyarnfestival2019 #eyf2019
These natural dye kits sold out fast last week, but I’ve rechecked my inventory and found I was able to make four more! Find them in the shop now- but be quick if you want one, they will sell out fast again. They make great gifts for the special fiber artist in your life!🌈 . . . . . . . . . . . #craftsposure #knittinggifts #handmadebyme #lovetoknit #alwayscrafting #makersvillage #learnsomethingneweveryday #slowfashionmovement #fabricdesign #quiltingismytherapy #ecodye #dyegarden #studioscenes #dyestudio #dyestudy #fiberculture #rainbowdye #plantpigment #syntheticfree #sustainabledesign #plantpower #knitting_inspire #handspinningyarn #yarndyer #loveknitting #exploretocreate #createdbynature #natureisamazing #apothecary #plantstudy

I really love how all of my colors are working together lately. It’s always my goal to create a cohesive collection that you can mix and match to your own mood and style. My inspiration for new colors almost always starts with what currently exists and then trying to find the holes. In the tag bin today I have Robin’s Egg, Always A Bridesmaid, Purple Rain, and Plush all on Everyday Lite, my single ply Superwash Merino Wool Fingering weight base. #ontheround #yarn #americanwool #indiedyer #dyestudio #artist #fiberartist #yarnlove
To say that I’m am excited about the @pantone colour of the year this year is a giant understatement- it’s coral if you haven’t heard yet - CORAL!!! . . I feel like I’ve been waiting for this for years. I love my yellows and greens and greys but Coral, Coral and I go way way back. . . My house currently has pops of this amazing colour in every.single.room; my wardrobe has more of than it should, and my yarns - yeah, I’ve got it covered there too 😉. . . If you’re looking to join the coral craze in time for the year of coral have a swipe through for current coral-y colourways and stay tuned for much more (shop update coming late next week! If it’s sold out now don’t worry - just stay tuned and I’ll dye up some for the update) .... as if I needed the excuse to incorporate more of it.... but I’ll take it all the same! Happy Friday!!! 💕 . . 📷 credit last photo @pantone
Who is my mysterious benefactor from my studio @weareprimary who leaves me lovely parcels of scrap copper?! THANK you - they are making me fantastic homemade mordants. I love this blue colour so much I can hardly bear to use it! * #metallicsalts #homemademordant #copper #plantdyeing #naturaldyeing #naturalunnatural #dyelab #dyestudio #botanicdye #metal #potion #diy #cottageindustry
