Cheesy Yarn

I found this advertisement in the back cover of Woman’s Day 101 Sweaters You Can Knit (Number 1, 1963, originally priced 50 cents). How could I resist sharing this cute and kitschy ad? (Click to embiggen.)

Rosé is apparently Melrose Yarn Company’s worsted wool (Superba) specifically dyed to match mohair. I think this ad would be cute reproduced on a Valentine card.
