This colorway was inspired by Marianne Dashwood, the ultimate romantic who values feeling above all else in Sense and Sensibility.
I chose a slightly heavier lace-weight yarn for this. It is made of soft merino, silk, and sparkly stellina. The sparkle is definitely there but fairly subtle. This is not a superwash yarn, but honestly, any open lacework project would need to be washed by hand anyway, right?
I made eight different character colorways based on the personalities of the characters, and each colorway can be used with every other colorway to make whatever amazing lace project you can think of. I dyed each yarn in multiple layers, which creates a rather amazing glow and richness that can only be achieved by layering dyes. This is a time-consuming process but so very worth it for the result.
