“She prized the frank, the open-hearted, the eager character beyond all others. Warmth and enthusiasm did captivate her still. She felt that she could so much more depend upon the sincerity of those who sometimes looked or said a careless or hasty thing, than of those whose presence of mind never varied, whose tongue never slipped.”
(Jane Austen - Persuasion , Chapter 17)
Anne is perhaps one of Jane Austen's most sensible and perceptive heroines. Subject to the foolishness and vanity of her relatives and friends, she is led astray at the age of 19, which leads her to spend much of her adult life becoming a more independently thoughtful woman who relies less on the opinions of others. Anne does not need any pomp or frills and you will not find any in my colorway interpretation of her. As a more deeply introspective and intuitive heroine, Anne calls forward muted and earthy tones whose beauty lies in the simplicity of truth.
This installment of Jane Austen's Heroines Sock Club comes with one 100-gram skein and one 20-gram skein of sock yarn on your choice of Voyager or Voyager Twist base.
Each skein is hand-dyed with care in my smoke-free, cat-friendly home. High quality acid dyes are properly set before washing and rinsing twice to assure the color adheres correctly, however some bright or extreme colors may bleed slightly in the first wash.To avoid this I recommend using room-temperature water and hand-wash the first time.Due to the artistic process involved; each skein is a unique work of art and allow for small variations.
