The first photo on this page shows you the inspiration for this colorway, called Cherry Blossoms.
Plus! Each month there are a numer of free patterns! This month we have two -- details follow.
About the Yarns
Merino Cloud is a luxurious blend of Extra Fine Merino (80%) and Italian Cashmere (20%) with 437 yards per skein, it knits up as a fine fingering through to a sport weight depending on needle size. Perfect for scarves, shawls, and garments of all types. (Sorry, sold out)
We also brought in a smaller number of Artyarns' Beaded Silk & Sequins in the same inspiration colorway with beads and sequins threaded into the yarn. Each skein is 100% silk with glass beads and sequins and has 110 yards (100m) per 50g skein.
The price you see on this web page now is for one Beaded Silk & Sequins skein. The other yarn has sold out.
Cherry Blossoms are the theme for this third installment of the Merino Cloud Inspiration Club.
A beautiful sign of Spring, the blooming of the 3,000+ cherry trees in Washington DC sparks the start of a festival that honors both American and Japanese cultures and reflects the bond between our countries which began with the gift of the trees from Tokyo's mayor back in 1912.
The colorway as created by Iris Schreier of ArtYarns is a wonderful mirror of the colors of the cherry trees in bloom.
On a base of cream and almost-not-there-pale pink, sections of varous greens alternate with speckles and dashes of rose and fuchisa as well as some green. The greens range from pale through to a deep almost-black evergreen; the pinks are lovely highlights dotted just like cherry blossoms.
The drop-down menu allows you to order the Cherry Blossom colorway Beaded Silk & Sequins skein.These are the only one we have left in stock.
The Cherry Blossom colorway is truly a limited one and won't be dyed again.
There are a few patterns that we can send you that require only one skein of this lovely Beaded Silk & Sequins.
Glittery Iceberg Scarflette is designed to simply use one skein of the Beaded Silk & Sequins.
And we have a great e-book from ArtYarns with 8 patterns that use the Beaded Silk & Sequins, 7 of which require just one skein. If you would like to get that one, just let me know. Most of them can be seen on this page (our PDF has all except the Silk Bouquet Scarf, as far as I can tell):
There were also free patterns developed specifically with this colorway in mind but they all require some Merino Cloud which we no longer have. If you are curious, let me know and I'll send you photos.
