No self respecting flapper would go to the speakeasy without her bee stung lips! This skein mixes the deep, seductive colors that flappers found most attractive for their lipsticks: bold crimson, hot spicy red, dark fuschia, and hot magenta with a soft black glaze. This incredibly bright, rich color evokes the sexy modern woman of the 1920s in a smoky jazz club. Because of it's rich saturation, please use extra caution when washing your project. Although I've rinsed this yarn until the water was clear, wash alone or with old towels in case of any bleeding and use old towels to dry. 

Lighter than a fairy's wing, this blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% silk is sure to become your new favorite yarn! A 2-ply yarn with plenty of twist, this works up into gorgeous, crisp cables and textured stitches or can look simply lovely and intriguing in stockinette or lace. The silk gives it incredible sheen and absorbs dye vibrantly for a rich saturated skein.

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.
