2019 showcases our Wizard of Oz 80th Anniversary Celebration Yarn Club. We will share the story, trivia and movie/music factoids, as well as a new monthly color representing a pivotal character or scene from the movie. These color ways are dyed in limited quantities on existing Fibre Studio bases--except for the November and December colorways, which will be dyed on an exciting and special base. The color ways will include tonals, variegated, and even gradients.
Dyed yarn is shipped around the first of the month (i.e. Orders placed by January 20, is shipped around the first of February).
Yarns dyed specifically for the Wizard of Oz Club are dyed in limited batches and may not be available or offered again.
The January yarn color was named Toto, a variegated tonal color way reminiscent of Dorothy's beloved dog, who is the catalyst for the entire movie The Wizard of Oz. We love our yarn shop dog Lola so much, this initial offering is dedicated to her!
February's yarn colorway was titled Over the Rainbow, a brilliant gradient dedicated to the famous song "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" sung by a youthful Judy Garland who plays Dorothy in the movie. While actually sung during a period in the movie, which was still black and white, the colorful descriptions in the song hint and the potential for color in the movie and in life...if we only seek it.
The March yarn, There's a Storm Brewin'... was a tonal on our SW Merino Fingering. Hues of gray, green, and sky blue twisted into this stormy skein.
Glenda appeared in April. The Fibre Studio's Starlite yarn was dyed a light, bubbly pink.
May we followed the Yellow Brick Road-- a SW Merino Fingering blend of our beautiful golds.
Scarecrow was our June yarn. Golden straw, brilliant blues, and glorious greens freckled our light worsted-weight SW Merino.
The Fibre Studio's Walkabout was the base for July. We named our tonal dyed in shades of red Have a Heart.
During August, as we continue our journey to Oz, we meet the "cowardly" Lion. For his color representation, we have chosen browns, golds and red, which we have dyed on our SW Merino - Sport base. As we get to know our lion friend a bit better, we realize he is lacking a little Courage.
This yarn is dyed for you in Charlotte, North Carolina.
