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 on Stained Glass Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
100% superwash merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Pagliacci would look great with North Wind or Eggplant.
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.
