Purple Rain, Purple Haze, Purple Passion - musicians get it, Purple is the Emperor of colours for a reason and continues to reign supreme here, we really can’t get enough. A royal purple based yarn with hints of pink and turquoise. The colours give a fantastic depth to projects and are endlessly lovely to look at. This has all the Merino characteristics, next to skin soft, smooth, modest lustre and pleasing bounce, this is Merino bringing all it’s charms to the table.
While we do our best to keep our colours consistent each hand dyed yarn is one of a kind so we advise alternating skeins in a multi-skein project. See FAQs for more information.
