Yesterday did turn out to be a pretty lethargic day but I did accomplish a few thing including a nap, 5 loads of laundry, a test run of the Vitamix and, most importantly, I got the mew fabrics in the shop.
I don't get the time to make shibori as often as I want but I did get some made last week. I got this latest batch listed last night. I hope you like them! You can check them out here.
Since my new black is so different from the old black I have given it a new name: Spooky. I really love this fabric but if you have bought the old black in the past you will find this one ot be really different. The gray is a beautiful gray and the black is nice but there are reddish/brown halo areas. It's got a nice look to it.
Sarcelles is 2 yards of a beautifully textured almost-black fabric. It has black, red/black and dark green areas.
Calais is primarily orange and brown with lots of accent areas of yellow, purple, green and other colors.
Versailles is a 4 yard piece of mottled black. Of course hand dyed black isn't totally black which makes it more interesting. It's shown here next to a solid commercial black so you can see the depth of texture and color.
Before I share the new items in the shop I need to tell you about the shipping and dyeing schedules for the next few weeks.
Custom orders (including Shades Packs) placed June 16 - 29 will be shipped July 5. All other orders placed June 21 - 28 will be shipped June 30 Custom orders (including Shades Packs) placed July 1 - 12 will be shipped July 19. All other orders placed July 5 - 12 will be shipped July 14
This means that I will not be dyeing again until June 30 so that impacts all Shades Packs orders. But there's plenty of other fabric that's ready to go! Like these new fabrics in the shop today:
This is the new black recipe that I worked on for months. It's not the perfect black that the old black was but that one's not available anymore. This one has some red/brown undertones. The gray areas are gray but they have some brown halos.
I have some new fabrics in the shop this week but first I need to tell you about order for this weekend. I'll be away Friday - Tuesday so all orders placed during that time will be shipped Wednesday, May 28. Custom orders (Shades Packs) will be dyed next week and ready to ship the following week.
Now, on to the fabrics! I have two sort of new fabrics this week and 3 more restocked.
Pastel Sunset has been away for a while but now it's back. It's the same gradient that's used in
