Lady Bird’s Legacy: former DFW color, now available until sold out) There’s one main thing most Texans think of when we think of spring – bluebonnets by the side of the road. Our state wildflower has always been populous out in fields and across the prairie, but thanks to Lady Bird Johnson’s efforts we enjoy them as a welcome distraction during the long drives across Texas’ 3,233 miles of interstate highway and countless more miles of Loop or Junction or Spur. This color celebrates the bright blue, magenta spot, and lush green leaves of lupinus, all five species found within the Lone State State.
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. This colorway does not have exact matching dye lots.
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.
