Daring, adventurous, bold: she's a pioneer of the skies, a strong trailblazer, a modern woman. In the 1930's, aviation was all the rage. Following Lindbergh's flight across the ocean in the 1920's, the following decade saw a boom in air travel, stunt aviation, and longer and longer journeys. Amelia Earhart became a celebrity for being the first woman pilot to achieve as much success as her male counterparts, and she boasted a long list of accomplishments before disappearing in flight. Aviatrix pays homage to her and countless other aviation pioneers by celebrating a popular color from the 1930s: lilac and lavender are punctuated by deep amethyst, violet, and berry splashes with a smattering of speckles.
I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
