Ming Red is a beautiful and unusual Terracotta red/pink colour based on the walls of the Forbidden Temple and other painted red buildings in China. A soft chalky but winey pink with touches of a warm claret perhaps. It was really hard to photograph the softness and richness of this colour and yarn. Tonal variations run throughout the skeins and ranges from a soft brick pink to a deeper wine red with occasional flashes of something darker.
