I named this new colorway Smitten because that was my own reaction to the colorway when I saw it. I hope you feel the same way! The colors include a deep lavender, burgundy rose, forest green, gold, and copper.
I dyed it on my Dream Sock yarn base, which may be the absolute softest thing ever created. Think of stroking a purring kitten or soft bunny and you'll have an idea of how soft this yarn is. It's made of baby alpaca, silk, and cashmere. Since there's no wool, it may work for someone who is sensitive to wool too.
Please be aware that Dream Sock is NOT a superwash yarn so it can felt. Please wash by hand in cold water and allow it to air dry.
I created an infinity scarf pattern using Smitten on Dream Sock along with Lilac on Alpaca Lace Cloud. You can find it here.
Smitten on Dream Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 3 plies
70% baby alpaca / 20% silk / 10% cashmere
Care: Hand wash cold and air dry
Smitten would go beautifully with Forest Green or Perfect Purple.
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.
