The iconic look of the 1960s is big hair, perfectly sculpted no matter the occasion. As bold as the clothes she wore with it, any self-respecting 60s housewife would get her hair styled in a bouffant known as a beehive. The size ranged from just a small pouf above her forehead to a towering wonder that could hide any number of things in it's carefully hairsprayed depths. Hidden in Her Beehive blends happy sunshine-y yellow with florescent orange and bright pumpkin for a skein that's so bold you might want to grab your sunglasses. A beautiful blend is achieved by the tonal colorway that won't stripe or pool, resulting in a beautiful flow of color.
Tempting you into luxury, the Seductress Sock will spice up and brighten any project you choose to create! 75% superwash merino, 20% nylon, and 5% stellina, the silvery sparkle of this yarn makes it something extra special to treat yourself to. The twisted ply structure makes it strong enough for socks and high-abrasion projects but the stellina makes it luxurious and delicate for a dressy sweater or extra special cowl.
I recommend hand washing only in a gentle detergent and cold water to avoid damaging the stellina and ensure your project lasts. Lay flat to dry. I rinse these skeins several times to seal in the dyes so there won't be any bleeding, but because of the highly pigmented colors, I recommend using an old towel the first time or two you wash your project just in case.
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.
