The light takes power from the shadow day by day. No snow this year, it seems. But still, in the north, snowdrifts close the ground in his arms. The spring has to wait. I carry my chair outside, to the light. The tops of the birch have a redish color, but in birch trunks, gray beats white. Soon though — white can shine in the landscape. Listen, water drips from the eaves. The great tit sings. The spring is almost here.
We wanted to dye a yarn for you which is like March. This year we will create a new color for every month and this is called Maaliskuu (March in Finnish). If you like this you can buy it only in February, after that it is time for a new color. We hope you like Helmikuu.
As each skein is a piece of hand-painted art, there are no identical skeins. It is recommended that for larger projects in the same colour, you should knit in stripes, alternating skeins every 2 rows.
Aara is lovely hand-dyed yarn, dyed in Finland. Aara's colours are created with visions of like-minded friends, inspiration as well as co-incidences.
** all Maaliskuu skeins are dyed to order so the delivery times will be a few days longer than usual.
Sets of three months are also available. The set of three skeins will be delivered after the last color of the set comes out.**
