"I'm looking at the world through rose colored glasses." I've always loved both the sentiment and the practice of this classic French phrase. Choosing to see things in a positive light and find the beauty is a wonderful quality and a deep spiritual practice. And who doesn't love the classic jazz song, whether sung by Edith Piaf, Louis Armstrong, or any number of retro and modern jazz artists?
This romantic, rosy pink skein is soft and feminine. A blush semi-solid is gently enhanced by the lightest smattering of speckles for a versatile yarn perfect for a variety of stitches.
Lighter than a fairy's wing, this blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% silk is sure to become your new favorite yarn! A 2-ply yarn with plenty of twist, this works up into gorgeous, crisp cables and textured stitches or can look simply lovely and intriguing in stockinette or lace. The silk gives it incredible sheen and absorbs dye vibrantly for a rich saturated skein.
Hand wash only to ensure your beautiful project lasts for years to come. Use only cold water and a mild detergent and lay flat to dry. 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.
