Monet's Water Lilies was inspired by Monet's amazing series of oil paintings by the same name. The colors include multiple shades of blue and green as well as a bit of lilac and some bright chartreuse.
I dyed it on Alpaca Lace Cloud, which has all the delightful texture of a mohair yarn with none of the itch. It's made of baby suri alpaca and silk, and it has a wonderful halo similar to angora.
It can be used on its own or held double with a fingering-weight yarn for wonderful texture.
It is a lace-weight yarn, but because of the texture, I recommend using slightly larger knitting needles or crochet hooks than you typically would given its weight.
This would also be great for weft in weaving.
The yarn comes in 50 gram skeins with 328 yards per skein.
