January 2016 // Polwarth+Silk, Silk Crush
Reflecting back on the months and years that we have been dyeing and creating for this Club, I noticed the strong theme of “longing” or yearning that runs through many of our colourways.
These colour stories are like the soundtrack to my life and many of them reflect some of my deepest desires and unrequited loves. For the past couple years, my colourway inspirations have been a mix of wanderlust, restlessness, with moments of joy and gratitude.
Now, in the midst of a gorgeous winter holiday that seems to have back-to-back “bluebird” blue sky days that would be ripe for snowboarding, I find myself wondering when I might be able to head up to the mountain again. Being surrounded by miles of white show is my blank slate, my tabula rasa. The way I settle my mind, invite clarity, and seek wisdom. But carrying around a watermelon-sized bump now means that winter white will need to wait. Wintergreen is a blend of those subtle pine tree grees and cold, icy blues that I miss so deeply. Take a deep breath of crisp, fresh, winter air. It’s January already.
