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.

I'm testing new base yarns and have really loved working with this gorgeous high twist singles yarn! A luxurious blend of 70% superwash merino and 30% silk, this yarn has unbeatable shine! This single ply yarn has an extraordinarily high twist which helps it to resist pilling and stand up to more wear than most singles yarns. Try it for a special sweater, drapey cowl, or swirling shawl! I recommend hand washing only in a gentle detergent and cold water to ensure your project lasts. Lay flat to dry. 

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.
