Ball at Netherfield was inspired by the ball hosted by Mr. Bingham in Pride and Prejudice. The richness of the colors, the warmth of the company (except his sisters), the elegance of the ball together were the inspiration for this colorway.
It's a variegated colorway dyed in blocks of color. I dyed it on Splendid Sock, which is fantastic for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon.
Ball at Netherfield on Splendid Sock
463 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
75% superwash merino / 25% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Ball at Netherfield would look great with Burgundy Rose, Renaissance Blue, Lilac, and Eggplant.
I included two photos of a hat I made using Ball at Netherfield on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it will work up. Of course, it will vary based on your pattern, the yarn base, and more.
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
