About the Current Color Series Pages.
Each batch of hand dyed yarn is unique but some color combinations or Color Palettes are requested over and over again. These color pallets make it on to the Current Color Series list. When a color ceases to be popular off it comes.
The yarns I dye fit into two categories based on their fiber content, Protein fibers and Cellulous fibers. Protein fibers come from animals; Wool, Mohair, Alpaca, Cashmere and Silk are examples. Nylon also fits in this category. Cellulous fibers come from plants; Cotton, Linen, Bamboo and Rayon are examples. Silk mixed with cellulous blends fit here also.
Protein Fibers and the Cellulous Fibers are dyed with different dyes and use different dyeing methods. This is important because even though every Color Palette in the Current Colors Series list is offered for every yarn the protein fibers and the cellulous fibers dye up differently. Generally the deepest most saturated colors can be obtained on the protein fibers while the cellulous fibers excel at subtle blending and shading of many colors. This means the same color pallet will be different on every yarn, for every yarn seems to take the dye differently.
