For the Love of Darcy

| Monday, March 26, 2012

Today's yarn review is one that has a special place in my heart.  I am a lover of Pride & Prejudice.  So when I was given the opportunity to review Pandia's Jewels in the colorway "For The Love of Darcy."  Pandia in Greek Mythology was the embodiment of brightness and the Goddess of the full moon. While each of her creations start from a spark of light she also considers each one of them to be a jewel of their own

Take a look at this beauty!

First thing is first, the color is amazingly thought out.  I would describe this yarn as a transition from Crimson to raspberry to a hint of royal purple.  Absolutely stunning!  I a sure that this yarn will be knit up into a shawl fitting its character, something that would be worn in the Spring months on a cool evening. 
The fiber blend its self is very durable and very soft to the touch.  I have no hesitation in telling you, you must enhance your Spring yarn stash with one or two of these beauties!

Fingering / 4 ply
462 yards/100 grams
75% Merino
25% Nylon
My Favorite: Machine Washable

Are you intrigued yet?  I guess it goes with out saying, Julia also carries FIBER & PATTERNS!  The woman is amazing in her color choices and how she marries each color change into the other.  Just take a look at what I am talking about Tempting !

Just in case you need another reason to purchase, take a look at a few more photos and see for your self why everyone needs this yarn.

I am so excited to have had the opportunity to review this yarn!  Julia has really outdone herself when it comes to this yarn.  I am telling you that her colors and her creativity are unmatched by any other.  As I said above earlier, everyone needs a skein or two of this yarn for Spring!

Thank you again Julia!

The Cosmic roving colorway is gorgeous and I want to spin it up now. The Woodland Magick/sparkle base would be a great hat too. Gorgeous yarns!

I absolutely love Storm. It reminds me soooo much of how the skys can look in Western Kansas.

I wish a could afford to buy a few, they're ALL gorgeous, its hard to pick only one favorite..... I love green and burgundy colorways so "Water sprite and For the love of Darcy" will make my day : )
