She's oh so nice and elegant, with her corseted waist and her hair perfectly coiffed. But wait...is that a stocking I see? Maybe she's just a little bit naughty as well...
The Victorian era is known for being straight-laced, a bit prudish, and very modest. But not everyone adhered to those rules! This colorway celebrates the naughty girls of the era, the ladies of the night, the pin ups who would pose for photos exposing all sorts of scandalous body parts and off-limits articles of clothing. Blending a faded mauve with vintage lavender, dusky rose, antique burgundy, and faded black, this variegated colorway will give a beautiful vintage feel to your next project. With deep dark colors mixing with soft faded pastels, it's ladylike and sassy all at the same time.
Softer than a whispered secret, Alluring DK is a fluffy single ply yarn. Lofty and light with lots of body, this yarn is scrumptious when worn next to your skin! Best for cozy cowls, luxurious scarves, and elegant sweaters, this yarn is happiest when it's handled with care and not too much abrasion.While it is a superwash merino, I recommend hand washing only to ensure your delicate single ply yarn lasts. Use only cold water and a mild detergent and lay flat to dry to keep this downy DK bouncy and soft. 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.
