Ophelia was a happy accident if I am perfectly honest. I was aiming for another new colorway I had in mind, and when the first two dye colors mixed in an unexpected way, I decided to go a different route. Ophelia has muted shades of rose, green, blue, and brown.
I named it after the character from Hamlet who loves Hamlet yet is discarded by him as he seeks vengeance upon his father's murderer.
I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method on Wonderful Worsted, which is a squishy and round 4-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It's great for sweaters, shawls, hats, and more.
Ophelia on Wonderful Worsted
218 yards / 3.5 ounces / 4 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Ophelia would look great with Burgundy Rose or Chocolate.
