I’ve been a distant admirer of indie dyer Plank and Stella for some time. And then, last fall, they started coming out with colors I simply could not resist. And so now my stash of Plank and Stella has begun!
This fabulously colorful yarn is dyed by Melissa in Indianapolis, Indiana. She loves bright, neon colors and it shows! Her colorways always catch my eye and I bet they’ll catch yours, as well.
Plank and Stella is dyed on a variety of bases including…
2-ply Sock (80/20)
4-ply Sock (75/25)
Sparkle Sock (5% Silver Stellina)
MCN Twist (Fingering – 80% Superwash Merino/ 10% Cashmere/ 10% Nylon)
Alpaca Silk Lace (74% Suri Alpaca/26% Silk)
Mohair Silk Lace (72% Kid Mohair/28% Silk)
Slub (90% Superwash Merino/ 10% Nylon)
DK (100% Superwash Merino)
Singly Ply Bulky (80/20)
Melissa always has some new and brilliant colorways she’s dyeing up. I can always find something to love on her website.
As mentioned before, there are an abundance of bright colors but also some very lovely solids and lightly variegated skeins. The majority of her works of art – er, colorways – are variegated.
While there may not be a ton of skeins of one color, there is always something to love on the Plank and Stella website. In fact, I often find too much to love!
Ease of Shopping
Melissa’s website is super easy to browse and purchase through. I’ve never had any issues.
Shipping costs are normal. Every once in a while, Melissa has a sale so be sure to follow her on social media to get the inside scoop on those.
If you love bright colors, you must see the yarn dyed by Melissa of Plank and Stella. I’m sure you’ll find something in her shop that you can’t live without. I can’t wait to see what Melissa will dye up next; she’s always surprising me!
