This listing is for the softest most luscious pink available. It was inspired by that beautiful color one sees early in the morning just before sunrise. It's a soft sophisticated barely-there pink with magenta speckles. I named it after Homer's epithet from the Odyssey, "rosy-fingered dawn." In this latest batch, I used more speckles than usual.
I dyed it on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. 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 400 yards.
