Product Details

The lace weight yarn is a luxurious blend of 55% Merino and 45% Silk, giving a subtle sheen and light drape to your finished project. A perfect yarn for lacy shawls and elegant light weight garments such as The Lady's Evening Jumper.

My Fair Lady is one of the eight shades of Marilyn, chosen by Susan. Each colourway is named after one of her favourite classic films, featuring one of her all-time movie icons. The star of My Fair Lady really needs no introduction, but it is Audrey Hepburn, who played Eliza Doolittle alongside Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins. Eliza's first appearance in her Ascot dress and hat is one that few of us forget. The outfit like Audrey's other costumes in the film, was designed by Cecil Beaton. This statement white dress just had to be the inspiration for this ivory skein of lovliness.
