When the Lupines bloom in spring they carpet the ground in all shades of purple to white. But this bunch in an alpine meadow was a deep rich blue, with only hints of purple, and that is what I set out to capture in Lupine Colorway. The third image shows the inspiration for this colorway. On my screen, the colors in the image closely match the colors in the fiber, but your screen may be different.

The yarn is perfect for livening up the simplest stitch pattern (stockinette, garter) or adding depth and richness to more complex designs. My yarns and fibers are hand painted in small batches. Minor variations between and within dyelots are to be expected, and are part of their charm. The images show a typical representative of this colorway.

The yarn was dyed and stored in a smoke-free home.
