Once the domain of solo dyers operating out of their home kitchens, handpainted yarns have slowly been making inroads into the mainstream. Today, your LYS may readily stock the bright, beautiful colors of Lorna's Laces, Madelinetosh, or Malabrigo, to name just a few.
In May, the venerable Rowan is finally tossing its hat into the ring with a handpainted sock yarn called Fine Art. The concept isn't new, but the execution definitely is. They've chosen a completely unique combination of fibers and a worthy crew to do the dyeing. Here's a sneak peek at Fine Art.
