This colorway was inspired by one of my favorite paintings by Monet: "The Portal of Rouen Cathedral in Morning Light." Here's a link to the painting. He spent two years painting the same cathedral at different times of day, and some have called it the ultimate series in Impressionism.
The colors include dark blue, medium blue, soft lavender, eggplant, and a bit of chartreuse with a generous amount of speckles.
I dyed it on Aran Go Baa, which is a 4-ply yarn that comes on big 115 gram skeins. It's made of 100% superwash merino, and it has 210 yards per skein. Aran is the same as heavy worsted.
Monet on Aran Go Baa
210 yards / 4 ounces / 4 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Monet's Cathedral would look great with Annunciation Blue, Lilac, Burgundy Rose, and Eggplant.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using Monet's Cathedral on Quick and Cozy Bulky to give you an idea of how it can work up.
