Every groovy young hipster in the Swingin' Sixties London scene knew that the best place to find mod threads was the au courant boutique, I Was Lord Kitchener's Valet. Like the flashy and vibrant clothing of the late 1960s, this skein mixes bright sunny gold with deep teal and intense violet for a heady mix of bright, exuberant color. Handpainted carefully to resist striping, this fabulous skein was part of the Swingin' Sixties collection inspired by the fashion of the Chelsea set in London.
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.
