This yarn was inspired by the main character in Sigrid Undset's wonderful trilogy. The novels are set in late medieval Norway. The main character, Kristin, makes a terrible mistake but goes on to do much good in spite of it.
Like the character of Kristin, the yarn has a pleasing complexity to it. I dyed it on my So Silky Sock base using rose, peach, and lavender on a background of gray.
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.

Kristin Lavransdatter would look great with Paris, Burgundy Rose, and Lilac.
