La Bohème was inspired by the brilliant opera by Puccini. It's my favorite opera between the music and the characters and the beautiful sad plot.
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 this yarn on So Silky Sock, which is a luscious fingering-weight yarn made of 50% silk and 50% superwash merino.

La Bohème goes beautifully with Monet's Cathedral and Burgundy Rose.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using La Bohème on a different yarn base to give you an idea of how it can work up.
