Welcome HalfBaked HandDyed, dyed by Danni Osmond, to our October 2018 Sisters Spotlight.
Danni's grandmother tried to teach her to knit when she was little but as Danni says "it just didn't stick!". Years later, in 2009, Danni bought some cheap yarn and needles and taught herself to knit from the internet. It has definitely stuck now!
Danni quickly moved on to spinning her own yarn, which led to dyeing fibre for spinning...which then led to dyeing commercial yarn as well. That's when HalfBaked HandDyed was born.
Danni says "I love combining colours so I focus on making a wide range of tonal and semi solid colours that can be used together. And of course, self striping sock yarns, which let me indulge in my favourite colour combinations! Seeing yarn I spun or dyed being turned into amazing finished projects by my talented customers is totally satisfying for me."
This month we're delighted to bring you a beautiful range of Semi Solid Sock Fingering/4ply, plus a fun selection of self striping sock yarns. We're also delighted that Danni has sent us two exclusive self striping colours Isla and Jutta which were inspired by our Skein Sisters logo. Not only are they exclusive colours but they also have a new sequence of stripes that Danni hasn't used before, with wider bands of colour separated by thinner bands of black. We hope you like them!
