The painting that inspired this yarn colorway is by Leonid Afremov, a late 20th century artist who used a palette knife and these amazing brilliant colors that are sort of reminiscent of pointillism. I actually created this colorway for my November 2020 club and decided to add it to the shop this year.
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.

Splashed & Speckled Colorway
400 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies

Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Farewell to Anger would look great with Annunciation Blue, Eggplant, Little Black Dress, Fandango, and Lilac.
