Called The Nina Simone Sessions because who but the high priestess of soul could better embody the descriptors of strength, richness, depth, boldness and vibrancy? The Queen sessions inspired fun, bright colours with over the top flair but Nina Simone inspires classic, elegant, rich and dramatic semi-solids, perfect for stylish statement pieces.

Recommended care: Can be machine washed cool on a wool/handwash cycle. We recommend hand washing to preserve the best of the yarn and colour. Do not bleach. Do not wring out. Do not tumble dry.

While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
