This episode is brought to you by Rocky Mountain Dyeworks.

 At Rocky Mountain Dyeworks we take our inspiration from the deep, rich colours of nature. Deep jewel tones, graduated blends or the brightest brights adorn a range of fibres from a sturdy wool/nylon to luxury cashmere. Our yarn comes in weights from bulky to fine lace, and spinning fibres range from a superwash merino to a decadent BFL/Tussah silk.
