Temple Peace is perfect for all of your multiple skein projects!
In southern Minnesota, near Hampton, stands a structure that you would never expect to see among all of the surrounding farmland. There are no signs pointing you in the right direction. But out of the corn fields rises colors of gold and red like most have never seen before. This structure is the Watt Munisotaram, a Cambodian Buddhist temple. Upon seeing it, you will instantly think that you teleported to the other side of the world! As you drive up the driveway, a feeling of peace will begin to wash over you; this feeling on intensifies as you get out of your vehicle. There are several structures with statues and gardens, each telling a story of the Buddhist belief. Visitors are welcome to freely walk around the grounds, taking in the serene beauty, taking photos of what you see; however please be respectful of the requests of no shoes when posted.
Pictured here for this colorway set, is the main temple. It is the largest structure on the grounds and sits on top of a hill. The red brick and gold leaf detailing makes a statement. The level of detail that is featured on each wall is outstanding (most of which you cannot see in this photo). Visitors can enter this main temple, but I wouldn’t recommend taking any photos of the inside – there isn’t a sign posted, but it just felt extremely disrespectful.
This colorway is meant to bring a bit of temple peace into your own hands. It is a full skein set of five different colors. The colors bring to life the two toned colors of the walking grounds, the red brick, the gold details, and the green on the roof. This set would be perfect for those multiple skein projects, think of all of those large wraps or even colorwork.
5 full skeins of the following base –

This fingering weight yarn is so versatile that it could be used for anything – socks, shawls, baby items, gloves, hats, scarves. The possibilities are endless!
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.
