I am absolutely honored to announce that Jennifer Steingass has used my DK weight BFL (spun from the flock of Two Sister's Farm, in Warren, Maine) in her latest design, Arboreal (published on Ravelry). 

 I have a relatively limited supply of this yarn, so to maximize the number of sweaters that can be knit from the 2017 yarn I will be dyeing to order.

My short sleeved Arboreal (please excuse the untucked ends) knit with Cream as the main color, and Delft, Summer Sky, Glacier Bay, and Lichen as the yoke (yoke colors available as a kit).

Jenn knit her original design using one main color and one contrast color, but the design also lends itself to other color combinations (like my blue yoke).  I've put together a few kits of my favorite yoke combinations.  

 
 
 

Trying to organize the ordering system is clunky and possibly confusing, for which I apologize.  With a very few exceptions, I don't have enough skeins of most colors to act as the main color, but I do have enough for the contrast color.  Feel free to choose you contrast color from the options listed on the Bluefaced Leicester DK weight page, or choose one of the yoke kits below.  I will be dyeing main color yarn to order. Because the yarn does not yet exist in a dyed state, please place your main color order below (this will help me by creating a dye list).  I'm offering mostly indigo dyed blues for the main color option, but if you would like a non-indigo based color I can also make that work (email me at uptonyarns@gmail.com to discuss).
