Phantom of the Opera was inspired by the dark and complex tale of love and revenge. The main colors are Eggplant, Purple, Burgundy Rose, and The Winedark Sea. I dyed it using my Splashed and Speckled method, so every skein will be somewhat unique.
I used Buttery Soft DK as the yarn base, and the colors are far more subtle in variation on this base than they are on my superwash bases.Buttery Soft DK is made of 45% baby alpaca, 45% extra-soft 19.5 micron merino, and 10% silk, and it really lives up to its name!
Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn. That means it can felt with agitation and changes in temperature, so it should be washed by hand in cool water. On the other hand, it can be fulled.
