JEAN VALJEAN on Quick and Cozy Bulky Yarn

Regular price $26.00

Jean Valjean is one of the colorways I created using Les Miserables as my inspiration. Jean Valjean is the hero of Les Misérables. At the beginning, this extraordinarily strong man is in prison for stealing a loaf of bread to feed his sister and her children. After being released on parole, he is unable to find work because of having been in prison.

Once again in desperation, he attempts to steal from a bishop, but the good bishop catches him and makes a gift of what Jean Valjean had intended to steal. Because of that experience, he decides to spend his life doing good and does so. However, all the while he is being sought by Javert.

I could go on and on, but I'll stop there. I dyed Jean Valjean's colorway in red for passion, purple for his self-sacrificing nature, gold for his goodness of heart, blue for loyalty, white for virtue, and black for the darkness of his life.

I dyed it on Quick and Cozy Bulky which is a 3-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It has great stitch definition and wonderful squishiness. It's perfect for when you want something that works up quickly without sacrificing softness.

YARN SWATCH
I included a photo of a swatch I knit up in this colorway using Sock Perfection. 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, the yarn base, and even the individual skein.
