Ladies are supposed to be quiet, demure, and stay at home...right? Not for this girl! If you can't be boxed into a Victorian stereotype, then this one's for you! Whether you aspire to be a spy, a pilot, professional sports player, actress, or entrepreneur, this yarn will bring out your independent, self-confident side! Beautiful deep rose blends with dark pink, rich cranberry, and sophisticated garnet, then is glazed with a sheer black wash for depth, dimension, and a little bit of naughty. With an occasional flash of white to break up all that depth, this tonal semi-solid is an elegant choice for sweaters, shawls, gloves, scarves, and more!

Luxurious and silky, this laceweight yarn blends 65% superwash merino with 20% silk and 15% yak. The unbleached, natural gray fiber creates extra deep and rich tones when it absorbs the dye for eye-popping shades with incredible timbre. Hand wash only to ensure your beautiful project lasts for years to come. Use only cold water and a mild detergent and lay flat to dry. Always test your washing instructions on a swatch!

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.
