At FONTAINEBLEAU in France a prestigious castle has been erected which has been the home of several sovereigns over the past centuries. As part of a university trip to France, I had the chance to visit this place in which successive hosts ranging from François 1er to Napoleon III. This visit was a highlight of my trip when my imagination was at its peak thinking of all the lives that had been animated between these walls. – Louise
It was like “buttah”. Gliding effortlessly through my hands as yarnovers were made and loops were created. The colors surprised the eye with the different hues creating their own magic. This colorway was absolutely delightful to see in the product🧶
I originally purchased this yarn for another project but changed my mind, and I am so glad I did! I just finished the first of what will be two throw pillow covers to go with my white and blue living room furniture. Irish Girl is the perfect color and feel for the pillow. No knots anywhere in the two skeins I used. Some dye released in wet blocking before I seamed the sides, but color remained glorious! I am very pleased with this yarn!
I found this yarn to be a light, soft, beautifully dyed worsted weight wool that was a pleasure to knit. I had planned to take it home after a month-long stay in Québec City, but I couldn't resist knitting something right away. As mid-October was a bit chilly for this California girl, I cast-on for a cowl I could use immediately. A simple K4, P1 pattern repeated in the round and a bit of Kitchener stitch to seam it together and I had an infinity cowl I wore right away. It's gorgeous, warm, and I love it. I will be ordering more of this yarn for future projects!
I was surprised at how soft and luxurious it was
I love the soft feel of the wood and the color changes of the dye.
