Bouquet was inspired by a beautiful little oil painting we have. It's one of my oldest colorways, but I've given it a bit of an update with some added speckles. The colors include deep rose, pink, yellow, thyme green, sea-foam green, lilac, eggplant, and white.
It's a block variegated colorway with short bands of each color.
I used Feather Sock as the yarn base. Feather Sock is made of 85% extra-fine non-superwash merino wool and 15% silk. It's a 2-ply yarn with a lot of yardage. It's great for sweaters, shawls, hats, and more. Just be aware that it should be hand-washed in cold water so it doesn't felt. On the other hand, it's great for weavers and others who want to full their cloth.
