Javert is one of the colorways I created using Les Misérables as my inspiration. Javert was the detective who spent the entire novel (and musical) seeking Jean Valjean. Unfortunately, his sense of justice could not bend at all in the direction of mercy, so even when he knew that Jean Valjean lived a life doing good for everyone around him, Javert still made his one and only goal recapturing Jean Valjean.
Because of his absolutely black and white view of the world, I made his colorway just that--black and white.
I dyed it on Splendid Sock, which is fantastic for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon.

463 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 plies
75% superwash merino / 25% nylon

Javert would look great with Jean Valjean, Objectivity, Kingfisher, and many others.
The last couple photos show a hat I knit up using Javert on Wonderful Worsted.
