Kristin Lavransdatter was inspired by the brilliant trilogy of the same name by Sigrid Undset. Kristin, the main character, makes some terrible decisions but ends up doing much good in spite of them.
The colors include several shades of lavender and purple along with a bit of pink and magenta, gray, and a soft peachy-pink. All the fibers are soft and lovely (of course), including merino, alpaca, and mulberry silk.
The last photos show some yarn I spun from these art batts. It's a 4-ply Hawser yarn.

Please allow 1 week for me to make these for you when you order them.
You can choose whether you would like sparkle in your art batts or not. If you choose sparkle, I will include sparkly Angelina and/or firestar that will coordinate with the colors.
