Welcome to my B - Sides Collection! All of the color ways in this collection are one of a kind (ooak)! These color ways are born in many different ways. The original B - Sides were the product of my adjusting to the flow of dyeing in my new studio, and inadvertently creating new ooak dye stocks simply by rinsing my tools in a fresh water bath. Additional B - Sides have, and will continue to join the collection in other ways. Some may be trial runs for new color ways, others may be skeins that took on a mind of their own in the dye pot; both meaning that you may eventually see a similar color way added to my regular line-up. However they have come about, B - Sides are fun ooak color ways that are never going to be exactly duplicated, so if there is ever one you love I suggest grabbing it while you can because once they are gone, they are gone.


*Please note that color ways in this collection cannot be custom ordered or added to wholesale orders, they are truly one of a kind.

All yarn is hand dyed in small batches making each skein beautifully unique. Product photos are a representation of the skein that you will receive, but may not be the exact skein. Please note that even skeins in the same dye batch may vary in appearance. The colors of the skeins are represented as accurately as possible in these photos, however, actual colors may vary due to monitor settings, or lighting.


To keep consistency and avoid color pooling when knitting larger projects with hand dyed yarn, it is recommended that you alternate two separate skeins every row, or every two rows.


All yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes, or natural dyes when noted. Yarn is hand rinsed to the best of my ability, however, it is not uncommon for some light bleeding to occur during the first few washes, especially in darker or highly saturated colors. If bleeding is a concern, I recommend hand wash/rinsing your yarn according to the care instructions prior to beginning your project.


If you have any questions, please contact me prior to purchasing.

A Certain Shade of Green B - Side

  • To keep your knits looking their best, it is recommended that you gently hand wash them using a wool wash or mild detergent and room temperature water. Never wring or rub your knits, simply remove excess water by blotting with a towel and air dry flat.
