Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
Gorgeous, glossy, rich color, and it knits up sooo soft. When I soaked the pieces to block them, it did tint the water blue, so just be aware that the dye will probably transfer to lighter colors. I'd definitely buy this yarn again!
