First, Rainy & Wooly are proud to announce that we will be selling at the 2009 Madrona Fiber Arts Winter Retreat. It is a great festival and we are so honored to be able to participate. The festival runs February 12th through the 15th, 2009 at the Hotel Murano, in Tacoma, Washington. Please come visit us at our booth or see Wooly in the Pavilion Rotunda where she will be the spinning mentor in the "Spinning Demonstration Booth."
Also, Rainy and Wooly were FINALLY able to get into the studio this last weekend. We spent two busy days releasing all our creative energy. Bliss! The result of our our work is a new batch of GothSocks (some in new colorways!) and lovely roving. Right now, we have the GothSocks up. We will list more items as the week progresses. Please have a look at our latest listings below.
First up is RomantiGoth. We worked hard to find the right purple for this one and we think we found it. It is a gorgeous strong purple (not violet nor maroon) which contrasts so nicely with the black.
This next one is a new colorway we are calling MaudlinGoth. We see it as a more instense version of our popular MopeyGoth. It is a moody mix of purples and berries like the wine stained lips of the darkest of Goths.
More purple in another new colorway! This one is called GypsyGoth. Perfect for the Stevie Nicks and tarot card loving Goth. You know who you are! This is a blend of deep and pale maroons spiked with pumpkin like the velvet tablecloth under your crystal ball.
We love this new colorway, one of Rainy's creations. It has the traditional black stripe followed by a beautiful color changing section that moves from a stripe of deep chocolate brown, followed by a stripe of pale mochas, moving finally in a blue amethyst stripe back out to mochas and again out to chocolate. It reminds us of amethyst geodes. Therefore, we named it Maenad for the lovers of Dionysus, the creator of amethysts. Great for pagan goths or grecogoths!
This is a another new colorway! We are calling Cthulhu Goth. It is a mix of oceanic blues and greens highlighted with sandy terracottas. It reminds us or R'lyeh, the home of Cthulhu. We think it is perfect for all you Lovecraft loving, Necromonicom reading Goths.Finally, another version of our MopeyGoth. It is our all time favorite! We have lots more to list and we will get to it as soon as we can. We hope everyone's holidays were just grand. Thanks to everyone who has supported in this our first year of business. Your encouragement and appreciation make it all the more fun. We couldn't do it without you!
