Violaceous is a luminous magenta purple, similar to the dominant color in Impatiens. Not for the faint of heart, it's a powerful purple.
Somewhere between a true laceweight and a fingering weight, we think of Yet as a "rustic" lace yarn, even though it's a sophisticated merino and silk blend. The slightly heavier grist of this yarn means it's easy to work with, especially for newer lace knitters. Yet wears well and continues to look good year after year. Try it in shawls and lightweight sweaters.
