The Holidays of December call for some bling, plus soon we’ll be facing the bleak mid-winter, so I wanted to dye something light and fun and sparkly. I actually chose the colors first, so no inspiration photo this time, but the lime green blending to seaweed green, a sky/sea cyan, indigo, and a pinkish violet reminded me of mermaids.
The yarn this month is Sparkle, a 4 ply with 3 plies superwash Merino and one ply sparkly lurex. I dyed this in a dappled gradient…..the color changes aren’t distinct, the colors will waffle back and forth giving a handspun kind of look to your project.
The fiber is a new one for TPT, it’s a blend of 70% Merino wool and 30% firestar nylon. That’s a lot of sparkle. The firestar was pre-dyed in rainbow colors, so it also lends some depth and movement to the colors. Dyed in a long gradient, but you do with it what you like….I just put the colors on the palette, you paint the masterpiece!
