Here is another limited-edition color created by Vikki Clayton. She had released some new silk ribbon colors last year and one of them caught my fancy. It had shades of several different colors in it and I picked my favorite shades and asked her if she could dye it in silk floss. And of course, she did! This is a very subtle color; very feminine, and reminiscent of old, delicate porcelain.
The color seemed tailor-made for the Lace Heart pattern that I finished last year. It was difficult to capture the color variation in the finished piece; I hope this close-up shows the delicate pink and tan tones in the floss.
