What’s a siren without pearls? One of the palest shades that I’ve ever dyed, it feels oh-so appropriate for this past year. When a grain of sand enters an oyster’s shell, it causes irritation, and the oyster in response “cries” (or scientifically, secretes mucus). Layers and layers of this build up over time to form what we know and love as pearls.
In this color, it’s normal to have a few tiny speckles (or maybe freckles?) here and there—dotted, as it were, as proof of the sand that began the whole process. Along with the palest shades of mint, lavender, and pinks, the effect is quite charming.
This delightful fingering-weight slub base has, as you can see, baubles of wooly joy along its crimp-y single-ply construction. Soft with a wonderful drape and sheen, this textured yarn makes for a fun knit! Use it for an entire project, or pop a little bit of it into your next colorwork sweater for some added depth. To be honest, I probably wouldn’t use it for actual socks. Because you have to walk on your feet and these baubles—but it could stand to be the thrill of a lifetime.
