Pre-Order Fiber in Color July 2021: Brain Freeeze
Brain Freeeze is a summer sweet inspired colorway from Shawneal over at Tazzi Crochets. With ice cream and frozen sweets making up this collection, Brain Freeze is the slurpee blue & purple variegated yarn that will bring you back to summer any time of the year. With almost equal parts electric rich purple and cornflower blue with all the tones in between, Brain Freeeze mimics the swirl of a grape and blue raspberry slurpee!
From Shawneal: Hey my name is Shawneal(she/her) but I also go by Tazzi. I am a Afro-American Demisexual Bisexual woman. Born in the 90's, So yes I have an old soul. Love uplifting and learning from communities. Crochet is my first love, but dyeing is my passion.
Along with each pair of skeins you select, each package will have a hand carved block print painting from visual artist Elliot Tan in the shape of what I call my L swatch. Elliot carved and stamps each print on Unryu paper made from mulberry (nicknamed “cloud dragon” for the swirly texture). Elliot folds and tears each sheet by hand and mixes watercolors coordinating with the Brain Freeeze yarn, then prints the swatch with water based block printing ink. So don’t get it wet! Find a frame for this beauty and let it adorn your craft room or office. Each print will be wrapped with newsprint paper for extra protection and stability with a sheet of cardboard to resist any bending in shipping.
From Elliot: My name is Elliot Tan (they/them) and I am a queer disabled multiracial ex-ballerinx charting my world through visual art, words, and movement. Common themes in my work are interconnectedness, duality, decolonial (un)learning, and delight. I am currently based in California.
