The Ceilidh Collection of fibre celebrates the very changing seasons. 8 festivals have been translated in to fibre form, creating a variety of co-ordinating colours in the same fibre base.
A ceilidh is a time of celebration, when people come together to look forward to the future, and think about the past. The break bread, share drinks and stories, sing and dance. There's a reason that we have seasonal celebrations, they help us get through the dark winter months, celebrate the coming of better weather, and commemorate the hard work of a successful season of work.
Even though we're separated by thousands of miles I hope that spinning this collection of fibre will help to tie us together and remind us of our shared past.
Beltane is the traditional start of summer. By now winter is a distant memory, people celebrated by crowning the Queen of the May, as the hawthorn blossom had covered the hedges in delicate white flowers edged in pink with delicate yellow centres. This festival celebrates the arrival of flowers, and the brightness they bring to our world.

This fibre is made up of many shades and tones of colour. It will look different under every type of light source. The photographs show it under natural light, and in a photography light box. Also shown are spun skeins, and knitted samples.
In total there are 8 colours in the collection.
NB. Every batch of the fibre will differ ever so slightly in how it comes out of the blending machinery. It is the same fibre composition, and will spin in to yarn with the same appearance, but braids might look slightly different. I recommend buying enough fibre at the same time to complete your project to ensure you don't get any differences in "dye lots" If you need more fibre than is listed at present please get in touch.
