The High Priestess is the third card in the major arcana of the tarot. She’s a take charge kind of woman. She’s a Leader, but also a Listener. She’s our spiritual guide and also our comforting mother. This color really spoke to us. It reminds us of those Autumn roses. Not the bright fresh pink and yellow and white roses of summer, but of the rosy pomegranates with dusty green leaves. The High Priestess, the second card in the Major Arcana is typically shown surrounded by pomegranates. She is Persophone heading back to live with her husband Hades, leaving changes to winter in her wake. She does not fear going to Hades. She loves Hades. They will share a glass of pomegranate wine in honor of her return as they settle down for the long nights of winter.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
