Soul found its apotheosis in Aretha Franklin. Ever since she was crowned “The Queen of Soul” in 1967 by DJ Pervis Spann in a mock ceremony at the Regal Theater in Chicago, no one has come close to contesting the title. Ms. Franklin sang in a voice that struck an ideal balance of strength and sensitivity, of roiling emotion and refined skill. Even when she hit a note with terrific force, her tone never lost its beauty. And each note brought with it a huge context. Sadly, this beautiful singer passed away in 2016 but her music and legend will live on.  

Every skein is a "Must Match" skein meaning you will receive two perfectly matched half skeins twisted together. Each half skein starts and stops in the exact same place in the color sequence!
