Shall We Dance? | House Blend

Welcome to Elizabeth Bennet's world of witty banter and love.

We developed three colorways for our March subscription box, each dyed on our super-soft House Blend base and inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. The colorways are inspired by soft yellows and pinks of Regency England, colors so often worn by Jane and her characters. The colors also call to mind the traditions of Jane's world, from high tea in beautiful china cups, to walks in the Pemberley gardens, to the ball at Netherfield.

House Blend is my perfect fiber blend for shawls and accessories. It's an ultra-soft combination of merino, cashmere and nylon, with a gentle twist that neither too tight nor too loose. It's soft, drapey, is beautiful to touch and work with, and takes on lovely tonal colors.

Beautiful color & softness

Love this yarn, it's so soft and I can't wait to cast on. Using it to knit a shawl with another speckle yarn which should be terrific with this subtle gorgeous color.

Gorgeous!

This is such a beautiful colorway...and pairs amazingly with the other two inspired colors from this round of subscription boxes...still in the admiring and petting stage as I determine how it wants to be knit up!
