Ming Tile is a very rich golden honey mustard and really stunning on this base. Warm treacle, almost golden orange. I was quite surprised with the difference over the sock base this was. Based on the glazed tiled rooftops of a lot of ancient (and new) buildings in China. Tonal variation throughout the skein ranging from honey to golden syrup and teak :-).
Larger quantities available as dye to order.
Ming Tile on Yecha - Tussah silk chainette - 4 ply f
The Jade Empress Collection is a collection of colours based on my recent travels to China. There are 5 colours to the first collection: Silver Cloud, Ming Red, Spice Trade, Hyacinth and Jade Bracelet and Ming Tile
Yecha is a very interesting but rather gorgeous chainette style tussah silk. It has a beautiful glow when dyed and I'm told is great to knit with.
