This yarn was inspired by one of Monet's Water Lilies paintings. He painted many of them, so I've included a photo of the painting I had in mind.
There are about 12 different colors in these, but the main ones include several shades of blue and green along with chartreuse and a bit of violet.
I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique. I used my Sparkly Merino Sock base this time, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.
I included a photo showing Monet's painting.

Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Monet's Water Lilies would look great with Lilac, Freedom Blue, and Enchanted Forest to name a few.
I included a hat I knit using Monet's Water Lilies on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it can work up.
