Arwen was inspired by The Lord of the Rings. She is the elf who gives up her immortality for love of Aragorn, and this colorway was made to go with The Hands of the King, which was inspired by Aragorn.
The colors are several shades of blues and greens along with copper and lilac, though those are very subtle. The yarn is strongly speckled as well with purple and blue-green speckles.
I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of extra-soft superwash merino and nylon.

The last photo shows three lovely skeins together. From left to right they are The Hands of the King, Annunciation Blue, and Arwen.
I have included a photo of a swatch I knit in this colorway. It should give you an idea of how the colorway will work up, but keep in mind that how it looks will vary a lot depending on the pattern you use and the yarn base as well.
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.
