Hillesvåg Vilje - Lake Minnetonka
- Lake Minnetonka is a dark, midnight blue color. It was created as one of the colors when I did a series of yarn inspired by one of my favorite artists, Prince. I named it after the lake in the movie Purple Rain, because I loved that scene when I was in my early teens

About the Hilllesvåg Vilje 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.
