New Color: Lymire edwardsii

New color right here.

For the second month of my indie-dyers group dye-a-long challenge, we were all given photos of insects as inspiration.  I was given the Edwards Wasp Moth, or Lymire edwardsii, and I am pleased as punch with how this came out.  This one is a complex stripey, with 10 rows dark teal, 3 rows pale steel, 3 rows medium gold, 3 rows pale steel, 10 rows pale haze, 3 rows pale steel, 3 rows medium gold, and 3 rows pale steel.

Lymire edwardsii, Edwards' Wasp Moth or Rubber tree caterpillar, is a moth of the Arctiidae family. It was described by Grote in 1881. It is found in southern Florida.


Also in stock this week is Zygoptera.  This complex stripey has 7 rows midnight blue, 3 rows aqua, 7 rows midnight, 3 rows fluorescent lemon, 7 rows midnight, 3 rows radioactive.

Damselflies are insects of the suborder Zygoptera in the order Odonata. They are similar to dragonflies, which constitute the other odonatan suborder, Anisoptera, but are smaller, have slimmer bodies, and most species fold the wings along the body when at rest. An ancient group, damselflies have existed since at least the Lower Permian, and are found on every continent except Antarctica.

All damselflies are predatory; both nymphs and adults eat other insects.

You can see projects in this colorway here.


Finally, coming this week is Diffusion.  This one is also a complex stripey, with 7 rows dark iris, 3 rows grey, 7 rows aqua, 3 rows grey.

Diffusion is the net movement of molecules or atoms from a region of high concentration with high chemical potential to a region of low concentration with low chemical potential. This is also referred to as the movement of a substance down a concentration gradient.
