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.

Pagliacci would look wonderful with Eggplant, Mithril, or Renaissance Blue.
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.
