When my grandmother passed away, I was blessed to receive 6 tea cups and 6 luncheon plates of Franciscan china handpainted in the pink Desert Rose pattern. It's so special to have these. Desert Rose is one of my favorite china patterns. Someday, I hope to have a whole set. In the meantime ---- yarn.
Available in speckled and handpainted skeins, which complement each other very well.
75% British BFL/ 25% nylon superwash wool.
464 yd/ 100g skein. 4 ply
Really lovely fabric for socks on US sizes 0 - 2. Enough for big feet, little feet and feet in between. Or shawls, or whatever you want. This yarn rounds out with blocking.
Machine washable, although I recommend handwashing (takes 3 minutes) in cool water. This will keep your Sok colors at their brightest for much, much longer. Additives in most laundry detergents will fade hand dyed colors over time.
