This colorway was inspired by a beautiful painting by Monet. The entire name of the painting is as follows: "Monet's Houses of Parliament, London, with the Sun Peaking through the Fog."
This was my favorite from a series of paintings he did there, and I used this painting as inspiration for my club colorways last spring. I'm bringing the colorway into the shop now.
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.
Monet's Houses of Parliament on Stained Glass Sock
400 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Monet's Houses of Parliament would look beautiful with Burgundy Rose, Lilac, Kristin Lavransdatter, Paris, and Monarch Butterfly.
