COLORWAY
This yarn was inspired by a really intriguing phrase from Homer's Odyssey. Apparently the ancient Greeks had no name or concept for the color blue. While pondering the idea for this colorway, a friend mentioned that on a recent trip to Greece, she noticed burgundy hues in the sea while aboard a sailboat.

YARN BASE
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.

YARN PAIRINGS
The Winedark Sea would look great with Renaissance Festival, Bohemian Rhapsody, or Autumn Leaves to name a few.

YARN SWATCH
I included a sample of a hat I knit using The Winedark Sea. It's a different base without the black ply, but it should give you an idea of how it can work up.
