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 my new Squoosh DK yarn base, which is made of extra-soft superwash merino and comes in large 4 ounce skeins.
La Bohème on Squoosh DK
250 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies
100% Extra-Fine Superwash Merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
La Bohème would go beautifully with Smaug's Treasure, Eggplant, Burgundy Rose, and North Wind.
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.
MY GIFT TO YOU
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.
