This is a Patreon Inspired colorway, created from by a photograph sent in from Fabiana of a bright and beautiful Bougainvillea plant. Click through the photos to see the photograph and the yarn together.
Bougainvillea always reminds me of warm, summer days. And I wanted to capture the bright pinks and purples against the emerald and darker leaf greens. This colourway has large areas of solid colour so would be nicely suited to an assyemtric shawl project which would break up the colours really nicely - the Sun Glitter shawl would be perfect!
If you would like to see one of your photo's become a yarn colourway why not come and join me on Patreon? There are 3 membership tiers available, and no matter which one you sign up for you will automatically become part of my exclusive Patreon community, you can send me a photo for a yarn colourway AND you will also recieve a free pattern of your choice every quarter.

If this colorway is not in stock, or if you would like extra skeins, it can be dyed to order for you. Just drop me a message through the Contact Form. As the dyelots are done in small batches they can vary slightly from the picture shown but you will receive a photograph of your yarn before it is posted to check you are happy with the results.
This beautifully natural and renewable yarn is 100% pure merino wool. Its fine soft fibres feel luxurious against the skin and it is the perfect choice for garments as the fabric is breathable and can help regulate body temperature.
This merino yarn has been treated with a superwash which is a process used to flatten out the yarn scales, making them less prone to felting. This means that the yarn can be machine washed, although we do recommend handwashing your hand-knits if possible.
