She’s a sensation, decked out in long strings of pearls. With fashionably tight cropped hair, exotic eyes, and dark skin, she dances across the stage wearing nothing but her pearls and a skirt made of bananas. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more titillating, the skirt drops to the floor...
Inspired by the fabulous, daring Josephine Baker, an African-American dancer who took Paris by storm with her exotic burlesque routines, this skein is full of irreverent, sunny humor! Generous speckles of saffron and lemon splash across a white background in a busy blend of color that is complex enough to stand on it’s own, or look stunning adding a pop of color to another skein.
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.
