Imagine the sun coming out right after a big rain storm. The gray sky is still off in the distance, but the sunshine is making everything sparkle with fresh color. That was my inspiration for After the Rain. The colors include several shades of blue, lilac, burgundy rose, fuchsia, sea-foam green, and chartreuse.
I dyed this yarn 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.
After the Rain on Squoosh Worsted
Splashed & Speckled Colorway
213 yards / 4 ounces / 4 plies
100% extra-soft superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
After the Rain would look wonderful with Lilac, Burgundy Rose, and Annunciation Blue.
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.
