Revive Designs is all me, Debbie - born and raised in rural Wirarapa. I'm a mum of 3 and I work very hard at juggling. independent hand dyed yarn company based in Christchurch, New Zealand. I've been doing extremely well since I started in April of 2017. I was the first New Zealand Indie dyer to have a spotlight in Skein sisters, Australia. I was then offered the same deal in Melbourne. I have had 2 designers use my yarn and will be working with 2 other designers shortly.
I'm lucky enough to be in these lovely stores:
*** Handzon, Christchurch
*** Broomfield's, Nelson
*** The Woolshed Cannan, Takaka hill
*** The Fox Cottage, Foxton
*** Stitch and bitch lounge cafe, Auckland
*** Wool on Wheels, Julie's place :)
All of my yarn and fibres are kettle dyed using professional acid-based dyes. These dyes are permanently set by the use of mordant and heat.
My Dye techniques are forever changing and I love it that I'm the boss. I research colours and then give it a go! I'm self taught and I actually love it that I'm not sure if it's the right way or not. My yarn is Bespoke and I dye colours for you and colours that are bright and beautiful, or neutrals and earth tones. I dye yarn so you can feel fabulous wearing your hand made wardrobe.
Yarns are dyed in batches of 4, it's helpful to order enough yarn and to alternate skeins to get the best results from my hand dyed yarn.
Photography I do my best to capture colours accurately. Remember colours can vary from monitor to monitor.
