Note from Sundara: A couple months ago, a long time, lovely customer requested a blood orange color. I am usually reticent to dye something by request like this, as invariably my idea of whatever color is being requested ends up being much different than the requester's idea of the color. But I have a hard time saying no to knitters who have bought my yarn for a long time, as I am so appreciative of their support. So after much perseverating over what exactly "blood orange" should look like, I dyed up this color.
And I admit, I am all agog at how pretty it is. I lust after these sorts of saturated, warm tones of somewhere between burgundy and wine, laced with flares of bright orange and brief highlights of light. This is the kind of color that makes me want to eat yarn.
So hopefully my lovely customer will find this close enough to her idea of "blood orange" to not be totally disappointed and the rest of you will also want to wrap yourself in this lovely color as much as I do.
You may order as much as you want until Sunday at 5PM PACIFIC. This yarn will ship in May, depending on factors such as when the mill gets me the yarn and whether or not my kid randomly gets sick.
Orders for 2 or more skeins will be matched as closely as possible.
