Preview - Hanami
These preorder skeins have a LEAD TIME OF 3-4 WEEKS.
The word hanami (花見) literally means “flower viewing”, and it’s the Japanese tradition of welcoming spring by gathering underneath sakura trees (preferably with some snacks or even a bento 🍱😋), and it’s definitely one of my favorite springtime activities. With this colorway, I wanted to capture the essence of the joy I feel when looking up at the sakura blossoms with the clear blue sky in the background. Knitting or crocheting with this would be like crafting with the tangible version of a bright spring day, with the scent of cherry blossoms in the air, and the warm gentle sunlight playing across your picnic blanket under the most gorgeous cherry tree ☀️🌸.
All skeins are carefully dyed with acid dye, washed and rinsed, however some bleeding may still occur. Each skein is unique and therefore colors may vary slightly from one to the next. Due to differences between monitors and screens, actual colors may also vary from what is shown. I recommend handwashing in cool water. Listing is for one skein only!
