LAKE ERIE PREORDER

Pre Orders for this colorway are now CLOSED.

Make sure you are on the email list so as not to miss out on future pre order events and exclusive colorways!  Don’t Miss out!

The Great Lakes Collection has been overwhelmingly popular!  Thank you so much for your support!!  I will open up pre orders again once the first round is dyed and shipped.

Lake Erie never seems to look the same twice.  One day it’s an intense navy blue, the next a muddy brown, the next a vibrant green, and in the winter a cool silver.  This colorway takes all of the many personalities of the lake – along with some inspiration from the creatures that live in it – and blends them to create a stunning compilation.  

Dye Technique:  Places (Hand Painted Yarn)
To create hand painted colorways we meticulously apply measured amounts of dye directly to the yarn in a specific sequence of colors. This creates very repeatable, very consistent colors. At Destination Yarn we call these colorways “Places” because like a place they are always the same!

SEE BELOW FOR BASE YARN DETAILS AND OPTIONS.

I have extended this pre order through Sunday, Oct 1!  Orders will be dyed immediately in the order in which they are received and will ship out within 2-3 weeks.
