From the designer:

I designed this pattern on one of the last weeks that we spent in our old home in York. As I was working on the design, the birds outside in our garden were singing so beautifully. We have always been lucky to live in a city with a lot of green, but these last weeks, it seems that nature all over the world has become more prominent, with birds singing louder, deer roaming through cities. Maybe it’s time for us to listen to the song of the birds, and, once this crazy time in our lives is over, to slow down a little, and listen a little more to what the natural world has to say.

When I was working on the pattern, I felt that the design could just as well be Scandinavian as Middle Eastern – so when I was looking for a name to put on the pattern, I asked a dear friend and talented Iranian born illustrator (Azam Masoumzadeh) for some name suggestions. We settled on the beautiful Persian “Soroud-e-Sepideh”*, which loosely translates as the dawn chorus or song of the morning. It had such a wonderful ring to it, that we decided that it should be a part of the pattern!

Overdyed by hand in small batches, this floss is awesome! Please ensure you are ordering the amount needed as duplicating dye lots is a tricky business and the next batch of this colourway may vary slightly.

Test a small sample if you intend to wash, esp darker colours. It has been rinsed and set carefully and should be colourfast - but always better safe than sorry.

Colour of floss may vary slightly from my monitor to yours  

Carded and packed for you by hand in a smoke free, pet friendly workshop.

Applicable Canadian sales tax will be calculated at check out.

Happy Stitching!
