This deep, rich blue was inspired by the blue in Fra Angelico's painting, "The Annunciation." I dyed it on my sparkly merino sock base, which is made of superwash merino with 8% sparkly lurex. If you enlarge the pictures, the sparkle shows really well just as it does in real life.

Annunciation Blue would go beautifully with A Little Princess, Monet's Cathedral, or Call Me Ishmael to name a few.
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.
