Note from Sundara: As I mentioned last week, in an effort to keep myself from burning out, I'm taking a break from the Daily Dreams and instead offering one "Weekly Dreams" as a dyed to order yarn. I'm delighted to send out this first "Weekly Dreams" color today.
Around this time of year, I get a bit obsessed with these flowers, as they are out and about to bloom, despite the frosty cold. They are technically named "Hellebores" but also known as Lenten or Christmas Rose. The deeply dark and rich, almost black, shades are always my favorite.
Rather than focusing entirely on the dark maroon-plum-wine color, which there is plenty of in each skein, I wanted to include the way the winter light bounces and reflects off each petal, adding a tinge of blue-blush, almost grey. You see it a bit in this inspiration photo, but much more so in real life. It adds a stunning counterpart to the blackened wine shades.
The end result of my efforts are simply stunning. It's a very pretty color, but also refined and elegant. I hope you'll get some in whatever yarn base calls to you.
You may order as much as you want until Saturday at 5PM PACIFIC. This yarn will ship in mid to late April, 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.
