PURPLE IRIS Hand-Dyed on Buttery Soft DK

Regular price $29.00

Quantity Available: 0
The inspiration for this colorway came from the beautiful purple irises in our next-door-neighbor's yard. Almost half the skein is dyed a deep rich eggplant. The other colors are soft lilac, daffodil yellow, and spring green. I then lightly speckled over the lighter colors with purple.


I dyed it on my Buttery Soft DK base, which 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.
