Hillesvåg Sol - Dearly Beloved
Dearly Beloved is named after a song by one of my favorite artists - Prince. It's one of the songs in the purple rain movie, which I watched over and over again in my teens. This colorway come to life after I decided to do a special collection of Prince-inspired colors. This and "Lake Minnetonka" are now regulars in the store.

About the Hilllesvåg Sol base:
Hillesvåg vilje is a gorgeous yarn spun by Hillesvåg from Norwegian 28 micron lambs wool.
This kind of wool is especially well known for giving a great look to stranded colorwork and fair isle knitting. It's suitable for hats and mittens, as well as garments such as sweaters or kofter (a full on colorwork norwegian cardigan).
A little note about hand dyed yarn:
Unless the yarn is listed as a "ooak" (one of a kind) the color is repeatable. However, as is always the case with hand dyed yarns, no skeins are exactly like each other and alternating skeins is always recommended.
All yarns are from a smoke-free enviroment with no animals.
