Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
I received this yarn when I ordered 2 surprise skeins. They were marked as tester yarns but I must tell you I was overwhelmed by the soft delight that this yarn is. I asked my mother, "Mom, This is the best yarn i've every owned or seen in my whole life! What should I make and who should I make it for? I just can't decide!" She promptly answered..."ME!" So I made her a gorgeous cowl and matching headband and I still have some for a little something for myself. Now I just dream of getting my hands on MORE of this yarn. BTW, The green color is a wonderful earth tone with enough variations to really amplify a little texture in your fabric. It's just amazing to work with!
