This listing is for the softest most luscious pink available. It isn't a bright pinky pink. Instead, it was inspired by that beautiful color one sees early in the morning just before sunrise. It's a soft sophisticated barely-there pink. I named it after Homer's epithet from the Odyssey, "rosy-fingered dawn."
I dyed it on So Silky Sock, which is made of half silk and half superwash merino. It's a lovely luxurious yarn base great for everything from shawls to hats to sweaters to socks. I enjoy using it as warp when I weave because it extremely strong as well as being lovely and soft.

Rosy-Fingered Dawn would look fantastic with Kristin Lavransdatter, Pagliacci, or West Fork in Autumn.
MY GIFT TO YOU
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.
