Signature Colorway!

We have it! We decided from the beginning that we needed a "signature" colorway. One that would encompass our favorite colors, and give a feeeling of "Splendor" whenever we (or anyone else) saw it. George came up witht he colors, and he is the dyer of it. He has done a remarkable job in creating it, and re-creating it. We hope to have some of this (on different bases) at almost all store stockings.

Here is your sneak peek :)

Another Colorway...

George dyed some roving is beautiful. While it was outside drying, this evening, the sun was setting (beautiful, of course), and the colorway name came to me. It was like the fiber was dyed for the name.

Because of our Navy background, I always think of the saying "Red sky at night, Sailors delight. Red sky in morning sailors take warning". Sailor's Delight. Our newest colorway... "Sailor's Delight".

Getting Ready!

Wow. We have been SO busy trying to get yarn dyed and spun for our grand opening! Between designing it all, spinning for instock, and customs, we are ready for the store to open!

We are hoping for an opening date of around October 1st, but it could be sooner or later. I have a couple of friends (also wollie WAHM's) doing some special knitting with our handspun to list in the store as part of the grand opening. If they all are ready before Oct. 1st, we will be too!

I am going to get some photos together for a sneak peek, soon. I hope everyone enjoys our yarns as much as we do :)

Until next time,
George and Laura

Our Very first blog post. It has been coming, and though we never thought we would be "bloggers", we have fallen into the blogging world.
I am not sure how often we will update, but I hope to share our work, our art with you here.
We are partners, parents, dyers, spinners, and I am a knitter (George doesn't share this love of knitting...yet). We truly found love in the fiber arts, and enjoy creating beautiflu wooly goodness for all to enjoy (though sometimes it is hard to say goodbye to our babies of yarn). The process has been both fullfilling and relaxing. We learn something new every day, and cannot seem to get enough.
So again, thanks for coming here, and supporting this small venture. Not as much of a business as it is a way for us to keep creating yarny "SPLENDOR".
