Ah, the beautiful Ladyslipper! Did you know the Ladyslipper flower is Minnesota’s state flower? I had an idea last year to design a shawl around the Ladyslipper blossom, with the color matching, and due to life it got put on the back burner. Until now. While this colorway could have gone many ways, – white, pink, and green, or white and pink, or I could have picked a different colored flower – I really wanted to focus on that stunning pink shade. From out of my dye pot came this gorgeous tonal pink color with speckles of mauve throughout. What a perfect color to celebrate moving to Minnesota!
This dreamy base of kid mohair and silk is perfect to hold by itself in a shawl with a coordinating yarn or to hold together with another yarn for that perfect ethereal look and subtle halo. Try holding it or pairing it with Ladyslipper on wool.

Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
