Fake Snake in the Sleeping Bag (Camp Kenyarn)
Welcome to Seismic Yarn & Dyeworks, an independent dye studio located just outside of San Francisco, CA
Fake Snake in the Sleeping Bag was created for in Camp Kenyarn 2021! When Jake from Kenyarn asked me to join this project, I had to admit that I had essentially no camp or camping experience to draw from. What did inspire me was the Brady Bunch camping episode, especially the part where the girls held a flashlight behind a bear cutout to prank the boys! Hence, I have the Prankster Badge (aka Prank Your Fellow Campers).
My friends shared their camp stories and pranks but I kept coming back to the Brady Bunch. Do you remember the part where Alice punctures her air mattress with her curlers and she thinks the hissing is a snake? Oh, Alice! Unfortunately, the fake and rubber snake images I found weren't exactly inspiring for a colorway.
Thank goodness for my Dye Interns - it was Riker to the rescue! He worked his magic and found some far more interesting snake images and it was the Yellow Lipped Sea Krait that inspired this rich yet steely blue colorway.If you would like this colorway on a different base or a custom sweater quantity, please see my Dye to Order listings or message me to select your favorite base and colorway combo and I'll happily dye it for you.
