These creations were inspired by the Yarn Dyers Collective that gives us a colorway each month and we create something based on that. It's a wonderful community building exercise. Leo's first interpretation this month is inspired by a moody, deep red rose image. It is concentrated with various shades of red and burgundy with splashes of fiery red to lift the colorway. There is some cream areas to reflect the creamy petals and on two of the three skeins, you will find a small spalsh of minty green and soft yellow to match the hint of leaf and creamy petals in the photo.
If you would like the skein without the extra green/yellow splash, just write that in the note at checkout.
The deep colors work year round and will work up gorgeously.
He's titled this "Velvet Kiss".
Each skein is 100% merino. Fingering/sock weight. 400m/100g.
This will work up beautifully as a sweater, shawl or hat or you can special order more and make a larger project.
Each month for this endeavor, I have a little helper named Leo who makes his own versions of the Yarn Dyers Collective monthly skeins, so keep an eye out each month for his glorious skeins and handywork.
There should be very little if any bleeding but make sure not to wash this yarn in water warmer than 30 degrees celcius just to be sure.
