Step into the enchanting world of Beltane, where the dance of Midsummer and Midwinter hues intertwines in a mesmerizing plying pair collection. Join us on a journey of inspiration, creativity, and the magical fusion of seasonal tones that bring this collection to life.
The Dance of Midsummer and Midwinter
Beltane, a celebration of spring's bloom and fertility, finds expression in our latest collection. Each Beltane plying pair features a 2-ounce braid of Midsummer color harmoniously paired with a 2-ounce braid of Midwinter, creating a seamless blend of tones that echo the vibrant awakening of nature.
Spinning Tales: The Birth of Beltane
Beltane's inception took root during a creative exchange with a dear friend, Miriam. As we contemplated the greens of Oake from Midsummer and Elvinia from Midwinter, the idea of merging these palettes emerged. The result: a collection that captures the spirit of shared creativity, springtime, and the joyous dance of colors.
Spring's Embrace and the Maypole's Whirl
The Beltane collection draws inspiration from the vibrant greens, blossoms, and the effervescent energy of spring. Midsummer tones symbolize the lively hues of May, intertwining with the serene, cool palette of Midwinter. Imagine the joyous dance around the Maypole, where the intertwining ribbons mirror the harmonious blending of these seasonal colors.
A Woolen Symphony: The Wool Pool Inspiration
The concept of a wool pool, a collective market for diverse wool from different farms, resonates deeply in the creation of the Beltane collection. Each fiber tells a story, originating from farms across America and culminating in a celebration of seasonal harmony. The wool pool embodies fair compensation for farmers and a rich tapestry of colors for artisans.
Beltane in Fiction and Film
Beltane's enchantment extends beyond reality into the realms of fiction and cinema. In the Wheel of Time series, Bel Tine mirrors the spirit of Beltane, marking the turning of seasons and the emergence of spring. The lantern festival in "Tangled" similarly captures the essence of this celebration, igniting a symphony of colors and lights.
Embark on a journey with Beltane, where Midsummer and Midwinter unite in a vibrant celebration of spring. Let the dance of colors inspire your creations, echoing the beauty of nature's awakening in every spun thread and woven tale.
