Behind the Veil | Choose your Yarn

$30.00$36.00 (CAD)

Behind the Veil was the yarn I created for my Samhain Mystery Boxes on October 31, 2021 and the colourway name is a reference to the veil or boundary between the world of the living and the spirit world.  On the eve of Samhain (Celtic reference) or Halloween ( a more modern day reference although one can find numerous historical beliefs and festivals celebrated around the same time of year around the world), it was and is still believed by many that the veil between the two worlds is thin.  Thus, we are able to more easily communicate and receive messages.

When I created this yarn, I was imagining the Veil as a dark  fabric that offers no give and wraps around our lives, like a sky-to-earth heavy curtain that is opaque and textured, not allowing for even a peek beyond.  But that, on Samhain, we begin to see small lights like candelight beyond the fabric that grow brighter throughout the day.
That is what I tried to capture with this colourway, small splashes of colour seen through a gauzy veil.

This colourway is layered four times with three different techniques…a complex process for a subtle view behind the veil.

NOTE: There are lots of little differences in the colours from  batch to batch.  Some are darker with more purple and less green…some are brighter…. if  you are ordering 2 or more, I will either choose those from the same batch for you or dye a new set to fill your order but either way, be prepared to alternate skeins as your knit

If you would like three or more skeins, a new batch will be dyed for you to ensure they match as closely as possible.

Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind.  Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
