I like my yarn sexy and my classic rock songs at least 5 minutes long so naturally this had to be Smoke On The Water, with one of the most recognisable guitar riffs in the world and plenty of time it means you can really knit into the groove. This jet black to royal purple ombre makes a gorgeous fabric that bring to mind the colours of a clear moonlit night, black with a deep complex dark purple transiton with bright lines of rich purple, it looks amazing alone or as a highlight yarn.
This base is 100% Superwash Merino, soft, bouncy, so touchable and perfect for everything from hats to jumpers.
Recommended care: Can be machine washed cool on a gentle cycle but we recommend hand washing to preserve the vibrancy of the dye.
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.
