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 Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one of the two plies is made of black merino wool, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 437 yards.

Pagliacci would look great with North Wind or Eggplant.
