ONYX AND AMETHYSTS on Sock Perfection

Regular price $26.00

I dyed this yarn using a technique based on Ikat weaving, which is thought to have been the first decorative weaving technique in Japan, Indonesia, and several other ancient societies.

The yarn is predominantly black with short segments of lilac. When you knit with it, you get a black background with little "stars" of color.

YARN PAIRINGS
Onyx and Amethysts would look great with any or all of the other ikat yarns, including Black Butterfly and Onyx and Sapphires. It would also pair well with Lilac.

YARN SWATCH
I included a small swatch I knit up using this colorway on Sock Perfection. It should give you an idea of how the colorway will work up, but keep in mind that how it looks will vary a lot depending on the pattern, the yarn base, and even the individual skein.

MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
Happy fiber artistry!
