Sensible Sock, Optimum DK
“Fiesta” is a tribute to one of San Antonio’s most beloved celebrations. This yarn is a big mix of all sorts of colors! It’s like a party on your needles or hook.
“By 1890, San Antonio, Texas, was a thriving trade center with population of 38,000. In 1891 a group of citizens decided to honor the heroes of the Alamo and Battle of San Jacinto with a Battle of Flowers.
The first parade had horse-drawn carriages, bicycles decorated with fresh flowers and floats carrying children dressed as flowers. The Belknap Rifles represented the military. The participants pelted each other with blossoms.
The Battle of Flowers Parade is the only one in the country to be planned and directed completely by women. Today it’s the largest parade in Fiesta. It’s second in size nationally only to the Tournament of Roses Parade.” – History of Fiesta Texas, Fiesta San Antonio
Variations of color intensity can occur between skeins since they are all dyed in small batches. No two skeins will be identical.
It’s recommended that you wash your finish item by hand and lay flat to dry.
This yarn was dyed using professional acid dyes. Although I rinse my skeins well, some bleeding may occur. I try my best to portray colors accurately. Colors on computer monitors and mobile devices may vary.
