ANDURIL Hand-Dyed Silky Sparkly Lace-Weight Yarn

Sale price $22.50 Regular price $30.00

"Very bright was that sword when it was made whole again; the light of the sun shone redly in it, and the light of the moon shone cold, and its edge was hard and keen. And Aragorn gave it a new name and called it Andúril, Flame of the West."
     --J.R.R. Tolkien

This rather amazing yarn was inspired by Anduril, Aragorn's sword that was reforged in The Lord of the Rings. I dyed the yarn gold, silver, and copper in approximately even amounts.

I chose a slightly heavier lace-weight yarn for this. It is made of soft merino, silk, and sparkly stellina. The sparkle is definitely there but fairly subtle. This is not a superwash yarn, but honestly, any open lacework project would need to be washed by hand anyway, right?

MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
