MARDI GRAS

Taking it's inspiration from the colorful parade of feathers and beads the three traditional Mardi Gras colors of purple, gold, and green are speckled and layered across the skein. Laissez le bon temps roulez!

Dye Technique:  Adventure (speckle dyed)
Dye is applied directly to the skein allowing for pops of intense color.  Colorways are repeatable but because of the way that the color is applied every skein is completely unique.  At Destination Yarn we call these our “Adventure” colorways because creating one is an adventure!

Pairs With:  "Mardi Gras" pairs perfectly with it's companion colorway "New Orleans" - a hand painted version of the same colors. Pictured in the last image.
