Violaceous is a luminous magenta purple, similar to the dominant color in Impatiens. Not for the faint of heart, it’s a powerful purple.
This light fingering weight yarn is perfect for fine gauge sweaters and large shawls. If you don't need the full 1750-yard skein of Katahdin, these 600 yard skeins might be the perfect choice! Katahdin can be knit at a heavy laceweight or light fingering gauge and is 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool. BFL is a perfect canvas for Babs’ colors, giving the yarn a rich depth and slightly glossy finish.
