All fiber bases are commercial combed top preparations, hand dyed by Ginny of FatCatKnits. Colorways are dyed according to recipes and processes developed to produce the most consistently repeatable colorways. That said, this is a HUMAN operation- please expect some degree of variation between batches, and even from braid to braid.

Dyer's Notes regarding this club pairing (included on original club fiber labels):
If you have watched Downton Abbey, you will likely be a fan of sweet Anna and her husband, strong Mr. Bates. Theirs is a deep, rich love which has survived many serious trials. As I considered colors, and sampled various colorway combinations, I knew absolutely that the colorways had to in some way mirror each other, and that they should be rich and calm and reserved.
Anna is, to me, a feminine little bird with a tremendously strong inner core, so I chose soft, nature colors in greens, browns and blues, adding in a touch of soft purple to feminize the combination.
Mr. Bates is all man. His heart is huge and his emotions strong, but as with Anna, he strives to maintain a reserved demeanor. He has a complicated history, and strives to always be good and do the right thing. I chose strong, dark and manly colors for Mr. Bates, making sure to keep them towards the neutral.
