Welcome to Hand Dyed Happy Headquarters. Next Update is Friday, October 28th. Join the newsletter to be the first to know!
sewhappyjane is all about happy color. You'll find yarn dyed in three basic styles: Tonal/Semi-solid, Tonal/Speckled, and Variegated.
Tonal/Semi-solid yarns use many layers of glazing and multiple colors added in different layers to create yarn full of dimension. The different colors adhere to the yarn in ways that make your projects interesting and lively, but they can never be completely duplicated. Please make sure you alternate skeins to help distribute the colors evenly, and order all the yarn you need to finish your creation.
Tonal/Speckled yarns are dyed a semi-solid color first and then speckled with lively colors to make them unique and fun to use in projects. Sometimes natural bases are speckled to make colorways such as Pastry Case, Tender, Pistachio Cream, Rainbow Sprinkles, and Umbrella Drink.
Variegated yarns have many colors evenly distributed throughout the skeins. My goal with Variegated yarns in to create an even distribution of colors that does not flash or pool in clumps. Depending on your needle size, stitch pattern, and project size, the final results may be different. If you are knitting larger projects using more than one skein please alternate skeins to help distribute colors evenly through out your projects.
