This yarn was inspired by Sara Crewe, the main character in the wonderful children's classic, A Little Princess. In spite of her own deep sorrow and hardship, she manages to bring joy to those around her. This colorway is dedicated to all who have managed to do the same in spite of--or perhaps in light of--their own sorrow.
The yarn contains several shades of moody blues and mournful violets but has a section of bright cheerful fuchsia right in the middle of it.
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.
A Little Princess on Wonderful Worsted
218 yards / 3.5 ounces / 4 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
A Little Princess would look lovely with Lilac, Burgundy Rose, Annunciation Blue, or Perfect Purple.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit using this yarn to give you an idea of how it can work up.
