Mini Skeins / 400 Yards / Hand Dyed Mr Darcy and Miss Bennet MYSTERY Mini Skeins Cachemire Fingering Weight

$28.00

Sorry, this product is sold out!

Mystery mini skeins for admirers of one of the most beloved romances:  Price and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  These minis are hand dyed in handsomely unique, while altogether lovely, colors inspired by the two main characters:  Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennet. Each hand dyed skein is 80 yards, with five skeins in each pack, for a total of 400 yards.

These minis are hand dyed in select Phydeaux colourways, which will include one of a kind and/or limited edition (brand new) colourways.

I fell in love with Mr. Darcy many, many years ago (you too?).  He was referred to as "Mr. Darcy, sighhh" after watching the ultimate Darcy: Colin Firth (I know those may be fighting words, but I'll stand by my opinion!).

Fitzwilliam Darcy:  wealthy, aloof, aristocratic, a bit snobbish and superior, with solid character and ultimately a grand romantic hero.  Tall, dark and handsome?  In regency colors, surrounded by the gardens and woods of Pemberly.  Fantastic color choice, suitable for masculine knits.

Elizabeth or Lizzy Bennet:  lovely, clever and quick witted, playful, and while quick to form a misguided opinion, also corrects her prejudice.  Jane Austen described her as "delightful a creature as ever appeared in print" (1813).  Flushed cheeks from one of her many countryside walks?  Again, regency colors, a little more rustic given her family's modest means, while lovely and feminine.  The perfect foil to the Mr. Darcy collection and idea for more feminine knits.

Each set will come with a pattern ideal for the colors and theme (Mr. Darcy:  a knitting pattern suitable for men; Miss Bennet:  for ladies).  They might be existing patterns from another designer or a brand new pattern designed specifically for these minis.  Or both!

Order quickly - Mr. Darcy and Miss Bennet minis are limited edition and supply.

I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. I take great care to dye yarn that is variegated throughout: no big pools or stripes of color. I also reskein all of my yarn after dyeing to ensure no tangles or knots.

Very soft and fluffy - perfect to wear next to your skin. Not itchy at all!
