As I mentioned elsewhere, this yarn absorbs color in the most magical of ways, hence it's name. The various shades of purple, lavender, heliotrope, violet, and on and on are intoxicating, and I couldn't be more pleased with how bright and vibrant these skeins emerged from their bath. They'll make a wonderful cardigan or jumper, and will also be stunning as a scarf or lacy shawl.
