Lady Mary Crawley. The eldest, and certainly most enigmatic, daughter of the Earl of Grantham. The object of many a man's desire and well aware of her charms. Lady Mary knows that she is the prize of Downton Abbey, and she's not afraid to play the game to get what she wants. The darling daughter who always overshadows her sisters, it is not until she falls truly in love that she realises the woman she wants to be.
This yarn was inspired by the deep red dress Lady Mary often wears to dinner. I have associated the colour red with Mary from the start and whenever I see this colour I immediately think of her.
Yarn is hand-dyed using acid dyes, vinegar, and water in a pet-free, smoke-free home. For optimal longevity, please handwash and air dry all yarns.
This listing is for the following yarn base:
Foxy Sock – 75% Superwash British BFL/25% Nylon in fingering weight. 400yds (366m)/100g (3.5oz) skein. $26US
I will do my best to match skeins, but please be aware that some colour variation will occur even within the same dyepot. If you are using multiple skeins in a project, I recommend you alternate skeins for best colour blending. I highly recommend purchasing the number of skeins you need for your project in the same order so that I can help make the yarn more consistent for you. Please keep in mind that although I use the same formula and technique to create each colourway, colour placement and saturation may vary from skein to skein. If you need more than one skein or a different yarn base, please contact me for a custom order.
Although I photograph my products in natural lighting whenever possible, please allow for some colour variation due to display on different monitors and in different environments.
