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 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.
Rosy-Fingered Dawn on Stained Glass Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
100% superwash merino
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Rosy-Fingered Dawn would look lovely with Pagliacci or Javert.
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.
