Wild Roses are Fairest

“Wild roses are fairest, and nature a better gardener than art.”

I’m pretty certain Louisa May Alcott had spent a June afternoon inhaling the fragrance from the Rosa Rugosa…the wild rose that grows all through New England and the Canadian Maritimes.

I’m fortunate enough to have 3 of the plants in my yard, and they are indeed prettier than any hothouse rose ever could be.

This colourway is based on the vibrant pink blossoms with yellow centres, the chartreuse green leaves, and the salmon of the rose hips left behind.

100g / 437 yards is enough to make a hat, or a pair of socks, or a shawlette.

There are 2 skeins available, and skeins are selected at random.

75% Merino
25% Nylon / Polyamide

Note:
I’ve taken care to photograph the colours in natural light. Monitors may display colour differently.
Unless indicated otherwise, you will receive the exact skein pictured.

Please handwash your finished item in cool water, with a gentle wool wash. I wash each skein after dyeing, and do my best to make sure no excess dye remains. However, deeply saturated colours (especially blue and red) may release a bit of excess dye.
