Romantic, elegant, and graceful, Art Nouveau is a blend of watercolor shades that will turn your project into a work of art! Art Nouveau was an artistic style and movement between 1890-1910 that took inspiration from the curving, graceful lines and beautiful colors found in nature. Art, architecture, sculpture, clothing, and furniture all reflected this radiant art form. Inspired by a beautiful Tiffany stained glass door, I created these gorgeous skeins full of life and color. Elegant gold, soft peach, calming aqua blue, graceful lavender, spring green, and rich scarlet blend and flow across the skein. With short runs of pigment, this colorway resists striping and will give a beautiful, random flow of color.

Fifty percent yak and fifty percent silk blend into a beautiful, luxurious yarn with lots of drape and a soft, silky hand. Best for elegant accessories that won't see a ton of abrasion (socks are not a great option here), this yarn really adds a special element to your project. Glorious shawls, cozy cowls, and beautiful gloves, stoles, and hats would all benefit from this quality fiber blend. Please use extra care when washing: hand wash ONLY in cold water with a mild detergent and 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.
