Now available as a dye to order gradient in your choice of quality luxury yarn base. Colours range from a rich royal purple (with blue leanings) through lighter purples, pale blues and onto a dark navy blue. It looks much darker on the superwash yarns (darjeeling) than it does on the silks. You choose your preferred base and weight/length, and if you wish an add on end please be sure to make sure to let me know which end you would like.
Named after not only my daughter and who I knitted this up for in Mindy Ross's Fins pattern.
The choice of base can affect the colours slightly.
