Inspired by my favorite artist, I named this yarn Monet. I was trying to capture the feel of impressionism overall from my favorite impressionist.
The colors are random "splashes" and speckles of lilac, eggplant, rose, and medium blue on a white background. Because of the random nature of the colors, it isn't likely to pool. It also means that no two skeins will ever be quite the same.
I dyed it on my Sparkly Merino Sock yarn base, which is fabulous for hats, sweaters, shawls, and more.
Monet on Sparkly Merino Sock
409 yards / 4 oz / 4 plies
92% superwash merino wool, 8% lurex
Care: Machine or hand wash on cold and air dry.
Monet would go beautifully with Eggplant, Burgundy Rose, Lilac, or Annunciation Blue to name a few.
I included photos of a hat I knit using this colorway to give you an idea of how it can 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.
