When the Santa Anas Blow (The Holiday): Police Box/Treeline/Rare Vintage/Skip to the End

Want to believe anything can happen? Well, it’s not the Santa Anas, but a shawl made from these colors might just be what you need.

Police Box:  Remember those old fanfiction disclaimers? Insert that here, about all copyright and trademarks belonging to the creator and the BBC. Other than that, this weathered but warm blue will keep you cozy on any adventures through time and space you might encounter. Pair it with Upgraded for Doctor-themed colorwork!

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. 

Skip To The End:  It may not be the end of your project, but you’ll definitely want to skip to the point where you can use this delicate blue color as either your primary or complementary choice.

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. 

Home Environment:

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.
