Color Inspiration Thursday: Noelle



Noelle is a new color for Fall and Winter. A deep, rich red, I think it’s perfect for the Holidays ~ red but not the standard “Santa Claus” red.

Currently, I have Noelle dyed on one of my new bases, Astraea, with is a blend of superwash m merino, cashmere, and silver stellina, which adds subtle glitz without being overbearing (or pokey! this stellina is quite soft, which is awesome!). Totally perfect for Holiday accessories!

(Astraea is fingering weight, and can be mixed in a project with Sunna or Tayet, for just a bit of glitz and shimmer).
