I dyed this using a multi-layered technique, and the colors are so deep and rich. The colors are gold, lilac, spring green, and a bit of blue, but the burgundy rose predominates.
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. I think the combination of the colorway and this fun yarn base will be fabulous together.
One of the photos shows a little sample I knit to give you an idea of how it will work up.

The last photo shows Durin's Bane, La Boheme, Purple Heather, and Epiphany.
I included a photo of a swatch I knit up in this colorway using Quick and Cozy Bulky. 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.
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.
