LAKE ERIE

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!
