I love the meaning of the word, and the colors in this batch evoke precisely what I envision nepenthe to resemble on both counts. And we can all do with a little grief banishing in any case.

If you like to pair yarns for a faded pattern, or just as an accent, this colorway looks just stunning with our Three Sweetest Pleasurings and Flowering Moss. I've included a photo of these three together for your delight!
