SUMMER CAMP YARN COLLECTION

SUMMER CAMP YARN COLLECTION

Summer Camp Yarn  Collection is hand dyed in the sun on the shores of Cape Cod.

Summer Camp Collection all came to be after Covid-19 hit and camp was canceled for the summer. My boys live for camp so this was quite a devastating blow.   So I set out to simulate camp as much as I could.  We have swimming (thank you pool in a box and trips to the beach), games, archery, and ART.  In an attempt to "live the dream in quarantine" and to simulate camp as much as we could and merged it with ART creating our Summer Camp Yarns Collection.  It's a fun time to dye yarn (in the sun of course) and include my boys into the creative process.  They both knit so why not!? We had never dyed yarn - but they have proven to be quite talented.  From the speckles, the labels - they help with every step. 

(full disclosure: we use professional acid dyes of which masks and gloves are always worn.  we recycle our fully exhausted dye water across our "operation" - which is currently in the driveway under the sun!)
