Joie de vivre: [zhwaduh vee-vruh] 

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.

Gaia fingering is a 100% superwash merino wool. The 2-ply spin gives it a tight twist  that makes it strong and durable. The lustrous merino takes color beautifully, resulting in a glowing, rich saturation. This yarn is perfect for a variety of projects including socks, sweaters, shawls, gloves, hats, and baby clothes.

You can machine wash the Gaia fingering on a gentle setting with cold water and tumble dry on the lowest setting. To help your projects retain their shape even longer, you may want hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. Always test washing instructions on a swatch before washing the final project!

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.
