Introducing our limited edition Nine Muses Lace. We are offering this 80% merino/ 20% silk lace yarn in nine unique colorways, each named for one of the Nine Muses.

Erato is the Muse of lyric poetry, especially love and erotic poetry. In the Orphic hymn to the Muses, it is Erato who charms the sight. Since the Renaissance she is often shown with a wreath of myrtle and roses, holding a kithara. Other representations may show her holding a golden arrow, reminding us of the "eros" that lives in the roots of her name. Since she shares her name with Eros, he often accompanies her, with Aphrodite's blessing. For this, she lent her color as well, the copper green associated with planet Venus since ancient days. Lace is the perfect occasion for naughty knitting and there's no time like the present.
