I'm so very happy to bring you this collection inspired by character's from Homer's Odyssey.
This colorway was inspired by Athena, the goddess of wisdom in Greek mythology who guides both Odysseus and his son, Telemachus. Her colors include gold and copper for wisdom, red for war (she's also the goddess of war), purple for royalty, and gray since she is known as gray-eyed Athena throughout Homer's epics. Her colors are deep and rich. I am especially pleased with the gold color, which really looks gold.
I made four different colorways based on the personalities of the four main characters--Odysseus, Penelope, Athena, and Telemachus. Each colorway shares a couple colors with the other colorways so you can use them all together or in any combination. The last photo shows all four together.
The photos show Athena dyed on my Silky Cashmere Sock yarn base. Different bases may appear slightly brighter or slightly softer depending on their composition.
As a reminder, please be sure to order each colorway in multiples of 4 on the same base. The minimum order is 20 skeins per base with an overall minimum of the same 20 skeins to make it easy for you to try out new colorways and bases. If you have any questions about this, please contact me prior to placing your order.
As one small-business owner to another, I understand how important it is to get your yarn as soon as possible. I work diligently to make that happen and to communicate well with you so you know what to expect. Most of the time, you can expect me to dye and ship your order within 2-3 weeks once you have placed your order. That said, I am the only dyer for Purple Lamb. If there are other orders "in queue" ahead of yours or my suppliers do not have a particular base in stock, I will let you know promptly what to expect.
