Quite a few years ago, I had a pleasure of meeting an American talented indigo dyer, who studied in Japan for over 10 years. He is now a fine art professor at Indiana University, an accomplished artist and also a very ambitious indigo dyer.
I have always wanted to expand our collection of indigo dyed yarns, and when he mentioned - may be he could dye them of me... I jumped at the opportunity!
This is one of the very very unusual indigo yarns. It was a part of his large art installation, using our N-25 linen paper. He dippped the skein only partially to achieve the beautiful variegation. The transition from very dark blue into light and into white... is exquisite.
I am honored to be able to have the yarns back to me and be able to offer them to you as a limited collection. Please treasure this. You are actually owning a piece of art.
Please note that the colors you see on the screen may not be accurate as each monitor displays differently. Thank you for your understanding.
