The Color Wheel was originally created for my 2023 yarn Advent calendar.
It include 25 micro (10g) or mini (20g) skein of lovingly hand-dyed yarn and a code to download your copy of The Color Wheel knitting pattern.

A few sets are currently available, more will be added soon as dyed-to-order.

"The Color Wheel" is my exploration of the color spectrum 🌈

But it's not the usual bright rainbow, it is a deep dive and exploration of all the beautiful hues and shades that occur while we transition from one color to the next.

Starting with the primary colors: yellow, red and blue, we will explore and bring together a beautiful muted rainbow of colors, each one smoothly transitioning into the next, to create a huge gradient.

*The inspiration*

Since I started my hand-dyed yarn business, I have become obsessed with colors and color theory. By exploring and dyeing my own color wheels, using different colors as primaries, I learned a lot about color mixing and color matching.

Recently, the dye brand that I have used for 9 years to dye my yarns, updated their dye formulation, and so some colors have changed.
At first I was quite worried, most of my colorways were developed by mixing some primary colors and if they changed, how could I recreate them? But instead of despairing and crying all my tears, I decided to test the new colors and develop, after a long time, a new color wheel, to inspire me both to recreate the old colors, as well as creating new ones.

This happened around the same time I was researching last year's Yarn Advent theme, and as soon as I saw the first swatches coming out of the jars, I realized I got my theme!

I returned to yarn dyeing in 2022 after a couple of years of stop (since Covid started), when all of a sudden I realized how much I was missing color in my life, and so for 2023 I decided that was time to dedicate an ode to color.
