This yarn is from my series based on Monet's Water Lilies, this particular yarn is themed on the Nympheas painting, synonymous for it's larger lilypads. Lilly flowers in this yarn demonstrated by bright pink, brilliant blue's and hazy violets showcase the pond, and the willows and lilypads are shown with a mystical, almost teal, green.
This yarn is the best of British, made using 100% British wool and spun in a British mill, keeping the carbon footprint ultra-low. This yarn is enhanced using 35% Bluefaced Leicester to give it a soft and luxurious touch, making it the perfect yarn to wear next to your skin. The wool is combined with a smaller percentage of nylon giving the knitted fabric extra durability and strength making it harder wearing and ideal for socks and garments. One reason I love using this yarn is that it takes the dye really well which is perfect when creating bright colourways like this one.
