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.
Each skein is hand-dyed exclusively for us by Travelknitter in one of eight stunning, jewel-like shades, created by Susan. Each colourway is named after one of her favourite classic films, featuring one of her all-time movie icons. The Gilded Lily stars Claudette Colbert in an archetypal romantic comedy, which has set the blueprint for similar films ever since. In my childhood I found a copy of The Gilded Lily film poster in a scrap book assembled by my movie-obsessed mum, and have always remembered the striking yellow background used for the poster, just like our own Gilded Lily colourway, a warm yellow, with undertones of gold.
