Each month I shall be dyeing 12 colourways on both yarn and spinning fibre inspired by the story of Odysseus' journey. Colourways are exclusive to The Odyssey Trailand will not be repeated. Colourways will be associated with characters, events and quotes from each book.
If you would like to read along, the version that I will be using is a translation by Richmond Lattimore and is available in paperback and Kindle version. (This links to Amazon UK). ISBN: 0060931957.
As The Odyssey is split into twenty four books, we'll be reading two books per month and the colourways will be released on the last Friday of the month. Books 17 and 18 will go live on Friday 27th November at 7pm GMT.Below you'll find the yarn preview of which there'll be between 10 and 20 skeins available per colourway.
