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.
I was very on the fence when I bought this yarn. The quality is beautiful, but I just wasn't feeling the color. It appeared to be almost a lustrous dark grey. However, I decided to try working with one hank, and as I started to work it up, it definitely looked better. My husband actually loved the color. I bought eight skeins, and yes, there is a lot of color variation to all the skeins, but that is whole point. I am using it for a C2C afghan, and I think it will be beautiful with all of the variation. However, if you are looking to use it for a sweater, you may want to choose another color. However, a shawl or some other item where color is not paramount would be lovely.
I have received 6 hanks and the colors where all different in each hank. Some had just gray and purple, a few had some traces of other colors and then one had heavy coloring spots. I know in hand dyed yarn you will have slight color variants but these are very noticeable.
I also thought there want much color variation to my skiens, I was seeing more dark colors. Then I turned a brighter light on and is gorgeous! I was working on it in the car and it's color popped mite in the sunlight, it's exactly what I wanted. It's a thinner yarn than is thought is be for sport yarn, but so soft. I'm using smaller than the recommended needles (1&2), but its turning out lovely!
Well-dyed, gorgeous yarn as always, but there wasn't much color variation in the skein that I received. It was more of a blue-gray base with a little bit of subtle black and purple than a real "blackened rainbow."
