I dyed my Eggplant colorway on my Alpaca Lace Cloud yarn base. This yarn base has all the delightful texture of a mohair yarn with none of the itch. It's made of baby suri alpaca and silk, and it has a wonderful halo similar to angora.
It is a lace-weight yarn, but because of the texture, I recommend using slightly larger knitting needles or crochet hooks than you typically would given its weight.
This would also be great for weft in weaving.
The yarn comes in 50 gram skeins with 328 yards per skein.

Eggplant would look great with Beautiful Universe or Monet's Cathedral to name a couple.
