Just in Cases (Love Actually) Amber Waves/Treeline/Rare Vintage/Chance of Snow
Love, connection, and not a little hope – all the ingredients for a Christmas miracle (with the whole community watching), just like these colors are the ingredients for a perfect holiday shawl.
Amber Waves: This color distills the nostalgic half-memory of sunset over gently wind-blown rolling fields into something you can hold in your hands.
Treeline: A forest of dark firs coats the sides of a mountain, not yet covered in the snow that coats the rocky peak. This colorway captures that deep green at the treeline, present both in summer and winter.
Rare Vintage: The rich red of a properly aged bordeaux, Rare Vintage is a celebratory color, originally created for Holiday 2019. Paired with O Tannenbaum, it’s as Christmas-y as you’d like, through, like many wines, it can be savored on its own as well.
Chance of Snow: Snow coats the earth and reflects the pale sunlight back up into a clouded sky – not heavy with storms, but gentle despite the chill in the air. This is the peace of midwinter – this is the color of Chance of Snow. A pale silver-grey, Chance of Snow is a cool-toned neutral perfect for either grey-scale work or setting off a more intense hue of blue or purple.
Opulence Yarn Base: The ultimate in decadence, this 70% Merino/20% Silk/10% Cashmere yarn has a moderate twist and a subtle sheen, making it perfect for everything from the most comfortable socks you’ll ever put on your feet to that luxurious lace shawl you’ve been wanting to knit. 437 yards per 100 gram skein.
This is small-batch, hand dyed yarn. Skeins of one dye lot were dyed together, but will have natural variations. I recommend alternating skeins if you are making a project that takes more than one skein of yarn. Colors on your monitor may or may not accurately portray the yarn color, since individual monitors may display color differently from Real Life. Up to 4 skeins in any one dye lot.
I highly recommend hand washing your finished project in cool water and then laying flat to dry. As thorough as I am with rinsing, some color can escape for the first wash or two. Wash alone, or at least with like colors.
This yarn is from a smoke-free home, but I do have pets. A random cat or dog hair may accompany your yarn, although I try to prevent it.
