"Stanley" Romney


Stanley is ready to fully list! Thanks for your patience as I prepared Round One of this year's incarnation. Named for Stanley, the little boy who gets flattened by a falling bulletin board at school (my mom's favorite kids' book, by the way), we have here a 2-ply sportweight/DK, in 100% New York State Romney. Sturdy but smooth and surprisingly soft, it isn't Merino, but it isn't steel wool either. If you think you don't like Romney, Stanley will change your mind.

Natural dye materials used may include (depending on the color) lac, madder, cochineal, logwood purple, weld, osage orange, quercitron, fustic, indigo, Saxon blue extract (indigo cooked with sulfuric acid), logwood grey, and chestnut. I mordant with alum and cream of tartar, and may also use chalk, ammonia, vinegar, or extremely small amounts of tin (only occasionally in red dyes).

Every effort is made to represent colors as accurately as possible. Click on the thumbnails for a larger view.
