Rainbow Lace Shawl Kit

Standard
Rainbow Lace Shawl Kit

Background:

This was my offering from a set of Nunoco “Chroma” tops. Each 10g mini skein is faux laceweight, consisting of a finely spun single plied with thread in a complementary colour. The kit was sold as the ten rainbow mini skeins, a crochet pattern for a feather and fan shawl and a beautiful rainbow crochet hook from Fleabubs by Lala.

Story:

The language of colour:

Blush, tint, hue, pigmentation.

And ‘Chroma’: a mass noun, meaning purity or intensity of colour.

Chroma excites the senses. Hits you with the full spectrum. Red to violet, the A to Z of visible tones. Nothing missing, none overlooked, working together to complete the picture.

An abundant language of colour.
