Birth of Venus was one of my club colorways a few months ago. I included Botticelli's painting as the last photo. The club colorways are exclusive to club members until at least two months have passed. I made a few extra skeins when I dyed it, and now enough time has passed that I can add them to my shop.
I dyed it on Sock Perfection, which is made of 80% extra-soft merino and 20% nylon, making it perfect for socks or anything else you want to be machine washable and hard-wearing.
Botticelli's Birth of Venus on Sock Perfection
450 yards / 3.5 oz /4 plies
80% extra-soft superwash merino / 20% nylon
Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Birth of Venus would look great with Forest Green or Verdigris.
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.
