About this Colorway

Femme Fatale is just as mysterious and beautiful as its namesake. Pinks, purples and grays evoke a smoke-filled nightclub featuring a starlet in a singing into the microphone.

This gradient is one of our Impressionist colorways - essentially 'speckled gradients'. This dye technique was inspired by Impressionist painters such as Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Mary Cassatt.

Notes about Knitcircus Yarns

Because of our unique dyeing process, many of our darker colors appear heathered, with small light spots sprinkled throughout. This heathering is normal. Our yarns are colored using professional-grade acid dyes. We’ve made every effort to photograph the color accurately, but appearance may vary depending on your monitor settings.
