Tu Meke = too much. Common usage = awesome. You can never have too much awesome yarn!
When looking around for a local dyer, I found a diamond! Carissa is the indie-dyer at Tu Meke yarns and her work is amazing. Her colour-ways are inspired by places back home in her native New Zealand.
I simply cannot rave about these yarns enough ... even if I can't actually pronounce most of them. Ok, all of them.
Aoraki is inspired by New Zealand's highest mountain (Aoraki/Mt Cook) in the South Island. It is a neutral of beige and grey with speckles of grey, purple, and yellow/gold.
Hokitika is inspired by the pounamu (greenstone) found on the moody west coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
Tamatea (Dusky Sound) is inspired by the dark waters on a grey moody day in Fiordland in the South Island of New Zealand.
Punakaiki is inspired by the 'pancake' rocks at sunset on the west coast of the South Island of New Zealand.
Waitaki is inspired by the pinot noir vineyards in autumn along the Waitaki Valley in the South Island of New Zealand.
