20 New Colourways Inspired by Alice in Wonderland

20 new colourways inspired by Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll are available in superwash merino DK and a sock weight mix of 75% wool and 25% nylon. Grab yourself a single 100g skein or a multi-pack of miniskeins. Themed project bags and stitch markers are also available.

Alice in Wonderland was always a favorite of mine. The vivid characters of the Disney cartoon helped colour my imagination as a child and some of the new colourways are obviously influenced by the film. Other characters (yarns) come straight from the book. Rereading it now, I was surprised at how little colour is mentioned. In fact, for such a lively tale, there is very little in the way of description of colour and appearance at all. But leaving so much to the imagination is where the fun begins!

I have kept this series strictly to the characters in the book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, which leaves out a few familiar characters that appear in the later book, Through the Looking-Glass (and What Alice Found There). I save these in my head for perhaps another dyeing adventure.
