Another limited edition option that's perfect for the new year! This run is a beautiful gradient medley with specks. It starts out with a deep crimson that fades out into a light gradient like King Balthazar's tunic. This crimson/pink color is paired perfectly with a shimmery silver grey that fades out into a light smokey grey that meets in the middle to connect to the light pink. There are black speckles to represent the tiger print on Balthazar's outfit. This adds some dimension to the skein and a perfect touch to add complexity to the colorway and your projects. This will work up so lovely with the smokey grey and ruby/crimson red.
As an added bonus you get a mini skein that is mix of grey, red with pink undertones, ecru and black specks. This is perfect if you want to knit up some socks or a shawlette or create a wonderful project of your choosing.

Description: The merino gives natural elasticity which is boosted with the nylon so you get great movement and stretch but it will bounce back wonderfully into shape. The merino fibres are not itchy or scratchy on the skin. The yarn is perfect for socks but can equally can be knitted into scarves, shawls, bags, granny squares, tops, or baby garments which will feel soft next to the skin due to the fine merino used. As this is superwash, you can wash your finished product in a washing machine. Recommended not to use water hotter than 30°C.
