"Gild the Lily" is a blend of rich metallics and jewel tones: gold, copper, reds, pinks, lavenders, and deep navy blue. Some skeins are a muted gold and navy with just a hint of reds, while others have a rich variety of all the colors. Let me know if you have a preference!
Gild the Lily
This yarn base, Facet, is a luminous fingering/sock weight yarn, spun as a single from 70% superwash merino, and 30% silk. It's perfect for delicate, drapey, knits. I love the luxurious feel and luminous sheen the silk gives this yarn, as well as the way it picks up color most deeply on the outside layer of the yarn, lending deep variation to the dyed strand. 438 yds, 100g. Hand wash, dry flat. (Even though the fiber is superwash merino, I'd hand wash because singles need more gentle care.)
