I fondly remember being a little girl with visions of sugar plums dancing in my head. The Christmas season always went hand in hand with The Nutcracker and as a ballerina at heart, it isn’t something I forget easily! This perfectly-paired bundle of colors immediately made me think of the Sugar Plum Fairy’s choreography in this iconic role and the yarn choreographed itself into its own little dance that will gracefully hug your shoulders the entire winter season and beyond.
