Tuscadero – Merino/Silk/Mohair


3 in stock


I adore my new base, Adoration.  Soft and luxurious, it is a dream to work with.  The mohair in Adoration helps to make the yarn have a wonderful hand feel, more than giving it a very distinct halo.  Every yarn in my Adoration line is speckled, because I *adore* speckles 🙂

Once upon a time, the tv viewers did not have a way to stream or record their favorite shows.  This was a very sad time.  If we wanted to watch something on tv, we actually had to watch when the network said so.  One of the “can’t miss tv” was a group of teens from the 50’s (yes, the 1950’s) – that were play mostly by adults.  Sometimes they were joined by Pinky Tuscadero, or her sister, Leather.  Most of the girls in my elementary school *LOVED* what the Tuscadero’s represented.  GIrls did not have to just wear bonnets and run through a field of wheat like other shows, but we could be bad-ass motorcyle riders.  WOW!

Ok, I never was bad assed enough to drive a motorcycle, byt I did have a pink scooter for a while.  That should have counted for something, right??

Tuscadero starts with a bubble gum pink base.  It is speckled with pinks, blues and a tiny bit of purple.

Larger quantities may be custom dyed for you.  Please send me a note here and I can put together a custom order for you!

All my yarns are hand dyed, and may vary in appearance or depth of color. Multiple skeins should be ordered at the same time, to ensure that they came from the same dye lot. You may want to consider alternating skeins within your project.
