The red in this photo is such a drop-dead gorgeous red that doesn't like to be photographed on her own -- so here she is in all of her glory paired up with some great greys --

I used this combination to knit up a Be Stole My Heart -- a fun knit by Cheryl Faust.  Cheryl is a newer designer, but she's got great stuff.  You should check her out on Ravelry!

 colorway is available for order in any of our yarn bases.

Dye Technique: Our yarns are all hand-dyed with acid dyes, using techniques which permanently bond the color to the yarn. The colors are all steam set for fade resistance.

Care: Hand wash or machine wash gentle cycle in cool water, using a gentle wool soap such as Soak or Eucalan. Block and air dry flat.


*Please note the colors may vary according to your monitor and computer settings.

    This is a very soft wool of good quality. Color is a rich red that does not overpower. I loved working with this yarn.
