I dyed it on Super Sport, which is a wonderfully squishy 80/20 superwash merino/nylon yarn perfect for hats, shawls, sweaters, and heavier weight socks for winter. It is a nice round 3-ply with great stitch definition.
Phantom of the Opera on Super Sport
Splashed & Speckled Colorway
328 yards / 3.5 oz / 3 plies
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using this colorway on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it can work up.
Phantom of the Opera would look great with Lilac and Burgundy Rose or with Ocean at Night or Sapphire Dreams.

Happy fiber artistry!
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.
