I have been seeing a lot of beautiful butterflies in our backyard lately, thanks to the previous owner who planted lots of flowers that butterflies love. I've even seen a few monarch butterflies, which are my favorite. This yarn colorway was inspired by those beautiful butterflies.
The colorway includes several shades of orange. Unlike Monarch Butterfly, there are no stripes of black in this one.
I dyed this yarn on Squoosh DK yarn base, which is made of extra-soft merino.
Monarch Orange on Squoosh DK
250 yards / 4 ounces / 4 plies
100% Extra-Fine Superwash Merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Monarch Orange would look great with Little Black Dress.
I have included a couple photos of a hat I knit with Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it will work up.
