Note from Sundara...Yes, I just used this inspiration photo to dye a plum colored DK merino, was it just last week? It seems I wasn't done with my plums as my muse. The last color was darker, and more solid, and this time, I wanted more of the violet undertones to contrast with all those lovely reddish-orange plum colors.
So this plum loveliness has some red-violet tones mixed in here and there and it's a hint lighter, although maybe it's more accurate to say it's more tonal overall, so you'll get a greater range of darker and lighter throughout. It would be DIVINE as stockinette, if you are feeling the need for something mindless, soft, and squishy. I don't think the fall sweater patterns are out yet (right?) but I might get some and horde this for when they are. It would be the perfect autumn sweater.
Just three batches available.
