One of the newer-to-me dyers from whom I’ve recently purchased yarn is Moondrake. If you listen to the Grocery Girls podcast, they have used Moondrake yarn a bit and Tracie has even used this yarn dyer for some designs…. Rachelle is the dyer behind this company and she is very talented!
Let me tell you more….
Rachelle dyes her lovely yarn on many, many bases, including…
Suri Silk Cloud (Lace – 74% Baby Suri Alpaca/26% Mulberry Silk)
Merino Linen Single (Fingering – 90% Merino/10% Linen)
Cashmerino (Fingering – 80% Merino/20% Cashmere)
Falklander (Fingering – 100% Superwash Falkland Merino)
Soft Fingering (100% Superwash Merino)
MCN Fingering (80/10/10)
BFL High Twist (Fingering – 80% Superwash BFL/20% Nylon)
Bubble Bubble (Fingering – 90% Merino/10% Nylon)
Corriedale (Fingering – 100% Corriedale)
Soft Sport (100% Superwash Merino)
Cormo Sport 100% Non–Superwash Merino)
Corriedale DK (100% Corriedale)
Soft DK (100% Superwash Merino)
There is always something for sale on the Moondrake site. And Rachelle has a monthly sock yarn that she dyes and it is beautiful! (See the picture at the top.) And she has kits available for some patterns that feature her yarn.
Ease of Shopping
The Moondrake website is easy to use and navigate. Sometimes I have problems seeing the pictures of all the colorways, but only when there are a lot of colorways.
Shipping from Moondrake has always been fast for me – and pretty reasonable.
Moondrake will always be a dyer that I look to when I need yarn for a garment. Rachelle has just so many fabulous bases for sweaters and such. And her colors are stunning!
