Yarn & Fiber Colors for Week 22

In this episode of National Fiber-graphics, we start off in the City of Lights (Paris) where we view an Egyptian exhibit in the world famous Louvre Museum. . .

I love ancient Egyptian history and the Louvre had a plethora of artifacts including sarcophagi, mummies and stone tablets etched with HIEROGLYPHICS. Some of these hieroglyphics were of a gold coloring against a stark gray/black stone. This fingering weight yarn is a nod to those ancient texts.

In another ancient topic, this BFL wool in MEDIEVAL WALL colorway was inspired by the ‘old town’ wall in Lucerne, Switzerland.

On the other side of the world, other colorways are playing fun. COCONUT LIME in a tweed fingering yarn gets its fun coloring from 2 plies of non-superwash merino and 1 ply of superwash.

And what’s summer without some tropical drinks? or a sorbet? in a sparkly lace weight yarn! TROPICAL SORBET is just similar to the sparkle sock yarn I have dyed up in the past, but in lace weight – gasp! How fun is that?

and we end this week’s journey in my most favorite place in the world…Hawaii. more specifically, the island of Maui. KAANAPALI BEACH is a tribute to a photo I took back in 2003 when our friends got married on the island. As one of the bridesmaids, I was able to share in a spa day with the girls. While awaiting for my treatment I took a photo of the beach from the hotel balcony. I am more than thrilled to represent this colorway in a Falkland British Merino/Tencel lace weight yarn:

enjoy!
