Violaceous is a luminous magenta purple, similar to the dominant color in Impatiens. Not for the faint of heart, it’s a powerful purple.
Big and luxurious, Big Silk combines the bounce and warmth of Merino wool with the shine and drape of cultivated silk. The generous yardage means Big Silk is great for big cowls, shawls, and scarves - one skein is enough for most worsted-weight accessory projects. Big Silk is a web exclusive yarn and does not travel with us to shows.
