Shrinking Violet (it seems I'm rather fond of this name as it's the second colour I've used this name for!)

Welcome to the world of Shrinking Violet, where enchantment and elegance meet in a vibrant dance of colours! Picture a mesmerising hue that exudes the brilliance of a thousand amethysts, swirled with the delicate allure of a blooming rose.

As you feast your eyes upon this wondrous shade, you'll be instantly drawn to its radiant intensity that captures the very essence of mystique and charm. Behold as the bright violet canvas casts a spell of boundless energy, filling your heart with a sense of wonder and excitement.

But that's not all; hidden within its depths are delicate pink undertones, which infuse this hue with a sense of gentle grace. It's as if the vibrant spirit of purple has embraced the tender warmth of pink, creating an intoxicating blend that tantalises the senses.

This colour is repeatable for larger quantities

Tonal variation throughout the skeins

 Weight & Length

4 ply, sock or fingering yarn. 100 gms gives you 400 metres


Darjeeling yarn: 80% Merino, 20% Nylon

Beautifully soft and just the right amount of nylon for a pair of socks. This also makes a gorgeous shawl or other wearable object.

It is recommended that you hand wash in cool to luke warm water with a wool wash to prevent dissociating. Slight bleeding may occur but should not effect the final colour. The merino is superwash but the dyes not. (However, I'm not hand washing my socks so there!)
