Irish girls are known for their fiery personalities and good sense, two qualities that Maureen O'Hara became known for in her Hollywood roles. Voluminous red curls, sparkling emerald green eyes, porcelain skin, and a unique beauty that made her alluring in any role she took on, Maureen was the quintessential Irish beauty during the Silver Screen era. A tomboy who grew up in Dublin, she came to America and began making movies at a young age, quickly showing that she had talent to spare. Her most famous leading man was the legendary John Wayne, and she made many films with him, creating one of the most famous Hollywood partnerships. Maureen had a magic onscreen that I've tried to capture in this ethereal colorway, inspired by her native Ireland and her famous green eyes. Rich shades of emerald, juniper, moss green, and sage flirt with flashes of sky blue and pure white, with a smattering of lively speckles.
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.
