This yarn was inspired by Pagliacci, the Italian opera by Leoncavallo. It was inspired by a true and actually very dark story. The yarn has a rich elegance to it with mostly muted tones of blue, green, purple, pink, red, copper, and silver.
I dyed it on Quick and Cozy Bulky which is a 3-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It has great stitch definition and wonderful squishiness. It's perfect for when you want something that works up quickly without sacrificing softness.
MY GIFT TO YOU
Pagliacci on Quick and Cozy Bulky
106 yards / 3.5 ounces / 3 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Pagliacci would look lovely with Renaissance Blue, Eggplant, or Copper.
The last photos show a hat I knit up in this colorway using Wonderful Worsted. 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.
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
