Yarn Ahoy!!!

Rare and Exotic Beast: Victorian Ectoplasm - Hesperus

Regular price $38.00

Tax included.

Garish. Outlandish. Like a lady in a corset regurgitating a slime covered embroidered handkerchief. I don't know how this happened.

It's got hot pink, bright teal-green, blue, brown, mustard, grey, navy, and probably other stuff too. 

The skeins are all from the same batch, but honestly all quite different. For a more even (really? REALLY?) result over a larger item, we recommend alternating skeins.

Hesperus is a fuzzy blend of kid mohair bound with silk - perfect for adding a bit of fluff to your projects.

Excellent on its own for light as air accessories, or as a carry-along yarn.

I try hard to take photos that accurately represent the colour of the yarn, but please note that screens all show colour a little differently. If you have questions about colours, please ask, and I will do my best to describe them for you!
