‘Votes For Women' speckled sock gradient mini skein set. Great for colourwork or amigurimi. Or for making socks to keep the feet of modern day Feminists warm!
Inspired by the official colours of the W.S.P.U. and Suffrage jewellery and medals, this set of 8 speckled mini skeins changes subtly from Amethyst purple all the way through to Emerald green and is intended as a respectful tribute to the women of the W.S.P.U. in this, the centenary year of the Representation of the People Act (1918) which first gave the vote to some women.
The colour scheme, created in 1908 by Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence is Purple for Dignity, White for Purity and Green for Hope. It is probably no coincidence that the purpose of the Suffragette movement, ie. to 'Give Women Votes', also corresponds to the colours Green, White & Violet.
75% merino wool, 25% nylon. 8 x 10g skeins of 42.5 m (approx) each, totalling 340m (approx) in total.
Hand dyed with acid dye for colourfastness.
The 8 colours from the 'Votes For Women' set are also available in other yarn bases, https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/FHarbourYarn?search_query=votes+for+women
