My Blackbirds in Flight dto colourway is a deep aubergine/eggplant coloured purple with slightly reddish tones - Rich, dark and luscious. Tonally and subtly variegated throughout - slightly more maroon than the pictures show. I'm in love with this colour at the moment!
Blackbirds in Flight- 4 ply sock yarn in merino & nylon
4 ply fingering weight. 100g - 400metres
Darjeeling sock yarn: 85% Australian merino, 15% nylon.
A soft smooth sock base that dyes up like a dream into anything I can dream up! A soft but firm sock base with good stitch definition.
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)!
