When my daughter Amanda first looked at this colourway, dried and skeined up she thought of it as a sugary treat, and it reminded her of the syrupy terms of endearment from her elders. Thus "Sweetheart" was named. A variegated colourway with a base of bright pink tones splashed with cool blues and speckled with 'citrusy' orange and yellow, "Sweetheart" is a Spring time treat.
