“Golden Hour”

”GOLDEN HOUR“ 🌄 – I don’t get to see a beautiful painted sky during sunset or sunrise that often, because I live in a valley with mountains on all sides that kind of block the sight. But when I do get to experience it, it feels super special to me. ✨ I am calling it „Golden Hour“, because it is that special time of the day, when I just want to pause and breathe and give praise to the Creater who painted the sky in a way that seems to be never quite possible to capture it’s exact beauty in a photo/painting.

“Golden Hour“ is a variegated colorway in tones of golden orange, blush, tan and speckles in the same tones and purple.


This year I am aiming to have each and every one of the 24 colorways (23 completely new ones!!) that are in the Adventcalendar I created, available in full skeins in the shop on the day they are in the Adventcalendar. ✨ I plan on only repeating some of the #HerbstblattAdvent17 colorways, the majority of them won’t be dyed again.


The photos have been taken with the colorway dyed on: Hazel Soft Sock (the swatch is knit in Hazel Soft Sock).


Additional information and care instructions:


Each and every skein is a truly handmade product – from the handdyed skein to the yarnband and label design. We take great care in taking/editing the pictures of our products so they look as close to reality as possible – but please note that these are “catalogue pictures”, we don’t take pictures of each and every single skein of yarn but try to do our best to represent the colorway and it’s varieties in the photos we use (the representation obviously also depends on your screen/computer).


I dye in increments of 2-4 skeins per pot, so please make sure to attach a note with your order if you want to use your yarn for projects that use more than 1 skein per colorway, so I can make sure that those skeins come from the same dye batch. Depending on your gauge, pooling might still be possible, although I try my best to prevent that from happening with my dyeing techniques. I highly recommend alternating your skeins for multiple skein-projects!


For best results and long wear I recommend handwashing your knitted items – in cold to max. lukewarm water with wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
I am using professional acid dyes and citric acid to dye my yarns (vinegar for stellina yarn bases), but I make sure to soak and wash them with ecological wool wash (Ecover) after the dyes have set and rinse them until the water runs clear before drying. But because of the nature of some dyes (especially reds/ blacks/ turquoise/ blues), “bleeding” of excess dyes is still a possibility.
