PURPLE IRIS Indie-Dyed Yarn on Sparkly Merino Sock

Regular price $28.00

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.

All of this is on a sock or fingering-weight yarn base made of soft superwash merino with 8% sparkly lurex. If you enlarge the pictures, the sparkle shows really well just as it does in real life.

YARN SWATCH
