Often used to express exultation of spirit or exuberant love of life, this phrase is one of my favorites. Also known as pizzazz, vigor, joviality, and vivacity, this phrase perfectly captures the lighthearted speckles in this beautiful colorway! Amethyst, deep violet, vibrant gold, and vivacious olive green collide and dance across a bright white background for a fanciful, fun project. Shown both in the original skein straight from the dye pots as well as reskeined to balance out the speckles, you can see that this zesty colorway is busy enough to add a happy dose of color to your day but evened out with enough white to really pop the colors.
With incredible bounce and super soft feel, the Bombshell Worsted weight is sure to become a favorite! 100% superwash merino makes this smooth, round yarn perfect for all types of projects. The luscious 4 ply spin makes this beautiful yarn a little drapey but still strong enough to hold it's shape. When you knit with this lovely fiber, the yarn feels like butter sliding along your needles! Try it for sweaters, wraps, hats, gloves, and baby clothes...even home wares!
Superwash merino makes this yarn an easy care machine washable option. Make sure to use cold water and the gentle setting on your machine. Tumble dry low, or lay flat to dry. You may want to hand wash in cold water to ensure an even longer lasting project. 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.
