Lucky Violet Color Co
A Special Event colorway, hand painted by fine artist J. L. Fleckenstein, available for pre-order for a limited time on the yarn bases listed below. Limited quantities available on each base.
"I was inspired to paint the yarn this way when my daughter and I were experimenting with colors one evening. We have both long held an affinity for peacocks (even though she was stalked, chased, and terrorized by one as a child at the Los Angeles Zoo on a field trip). I hope to capture something of the breathtaking artistry of these majestic birds in this special, limited colorway." ~ J. L. Fleckenstein, Fine Artist
Everyone who purchases "Peacock Feathers" will receive a special edition knitting pattern for a magnificent lacey triangle shawl designed also by J. L. Fleckenstein. The pattern is designed to be knit in either lace weight or fingering weight yarn. Our favorite and the most beautiful choice for this colorway is our Phaedra lace weight ... oh, oh my.
The yarn will be painted beginning in mid-May 2018 and shipping will begin as soon as possible after that. Your lovely gift-wrapped package will include extra special treats and love. We will sell only a limited quantity of this colorway, so please order early. You may order in any quantity; for the lace weight shawl you will need one hank, for fingering weight you will need two hanks for the correct yardage.
Orders will be accepted through May 7, 2018 or until the quantity we are offering in each yarn base is sold out.

Our hand painted yarns are micro-brewed by individual fine artists. Variations between hanks reflect the beauty of these one-of-a-kind, artist creations. When you order multiple hanks in the same colorway, they are dyed in one batch and great care is taken to match hue, tint/shade, variegation, and sprinkles. Even with that, there may be some variations between hanks ... such is the nature of our fine art fiber products.
