Dye-a-day #3: This time, let's have some yarn!
Bunnylace in 'bramble vine'! Bunnylace is a 2-ply heavy-lace-weight yarn, 80% wool and 20% angora. It has a gorgeous, soft halo and feels unbelievably soft. As a base yarn, it isn't bright white, but has a slightly brown-grey hue; because of this and the angora content (I think), it takes dye more softly than other yarns, resulting in some really magical, ethereal effects.
'Victorian Lace Today'. I love the definition of the stitches combined with the subtle halo - but oh, I wish I could blog in pet-o-vision!
