Little luxuries for a little less.

The long-awaited Alchemy Dyed Colors have arrived! These are hand-dyed, rather than hand-painted, colourways in some of Alchemy's most popular yarns. The best part? They're 2/3 the cost of the hand-paints - and still the same luxurious fiber content!

We got these colors in Wabi Sabi Dyes (66% silk, 34% wool):

And these colors in Synchronicity - a popular 50% silk, 50% wool blend:

To browse available designs in these yarns, check out the Alchemy Website. I'm getting ready to start on the Tripitina coat, and Gina H. is planning to do Urban Refugee. Ingrid already whipped out a Girl Next Door pullover, which is on display near the Alchemy.

And speaking of Ingrid, check out this jacket she just finished in Noro Iro. Wow!

And one more show and tell...Gene just finished this little "Wubbi" blanket in Trendsetter Zucca. For those of you who love Plymouth Heaven, be sure to check out Zucca. Same yummy, fluffy feel and more vibrant colors. Too cute!
