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 Carnevale to name a few.
I included a photo of a swatch I knit up in this colorway using Sock Perfection. 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.
