Color Story: New Hand-Dyed Palettes On Your Favorite Yarns for Fall

As the air turns crisp, it's time to start thinking about warm, cozy projects to knit, crochet, and perhaps even weave with your favorite yarns. We've added three exciting new hand-dyed color collections on two of our best-love yarn bases to our Indie Dyer Series for fall. Get ready to be inspired!

Liz Jarman from Colorful Eclectic created a four-color palette inspired by the shortgrass prairie. Dyed on our luxurious Gobi Fingering, a blend of 35% baby camel and 65% mulberry silk, the EXPANSE collection features three semisolid and one variegated colorways to mix and match.

Since Liz has such a way with color, we were delighted to request one more collection of coordinated colors from her dyepots. ON THE RANCH features a muted, autumnal palette inspired by a day in the field and dyed on our Himalayan Summit Yak/Merino fingering weight base. 

Our third color palette features wild colors inspired by wild places. SERIOUSLY, IT'S IN TASMANIA! features 6 colors hand-dyed on Himalayan Summit fingering yarn by MJ Yarns. With names like Wombat Flat, Prickly Bottom & Big Hippo, they're sure to put a smile on your face and add a dash of fun to your next project.

Knitting Pattern Ideas
What's great about fingering weight yarns is that there are so many fabulous patterns which use this versatile yarn, and quite often, substituting in your preferred fiber blend is a snap! Here are a few of our favorite patterns to try with our newest colors.

The All About That Brioche shawl by Lisa H. is knitted in two colors of our Gobi Fingering yarn (35/65 baby camel/silk blend) from the Valkyries collection.

The Fog, Smoke, and Smog shawl by Stella E. is knitted with three colors of our Himalayan Summit yarn (50/50 Tibetan Yak/superfine Merino) from ON THE RANCH.

We have many more patterns especially for fingering weight yarns available here on our website, too. We look forward to seeing what you make this fall - be sure to share with us on Instagram using the #bijoubasinranch hashtag!
