Figgy pudding only comes around once a year on the special occasion of Christmas/Yule and a yarn this unique only comes around once in awhile too! When an accidental splash of dye marred my rosy pink skeins, I decided to make the best of it and started adding speckles to enliven the skeins...with stunning results! The luxurious fibers that make up this skein gave a vintage vibe and dusky hue to the rosy pinks I used to dye them and these skeins have a beautifully ethereal hue. There are only 5 of these never to be repeated skeins available...enough for a small sweater!
These skeins are an incredible treat for your hands! 70% baby alpaca gives a slight halo and dusky finish to these elegant skeins while 20% silk adds a sheen that is unbeatable! Finished off with 10% cashmere for the extra soft and cushy hand, this is pure luxury for your hook or needles! Soft and drapey, these skeins are best for elegant sweaters, luxurious cowls, and delicate lacy accessories...anything that won't see a ton of abrasion or wear (no socks for these!). Be sure to use extra care when washing: hand wash only in cool water and a mild detergent, then lay flat to dry.
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.
