Holly Blue Butterfly

Only 4 left in stock



This blend was made for the 'Study in Blue' rolag club. The inspiration photograph is of a Holly Blue butterfly.

The Holly Blue lays it eggs on the base of Holly flowers and on Ivy. The caterpillars eat the holly and ivy plants, and then pupate over winter. The adults are seen during spring and summer, often sunning themselves at the top of bushes with their wings closed.

What I loved the most about the photograph was the furry texture of the wings. This led my decision to make a gradient using a blend of merino/ white llama, to give a soft, warm blend which has a lovely halo.

This gradient is made from 1/3 baby llama and 2/3 merino.

The gradient can be made up as striped rolags, a gradient rolag set - as shown in the images - that is 2 rolags of each colour OR it can be made up as batts..
