The double Octavius is a beautiful subtle greyed lilac, with washes of greyed blue, pink, and sand - pale with subtle tonal variegation. If you put it with bright colours it will be demure and behave a bit like a grubby purpler grey. By itself or with lighter colours, the complexity of the colourway will be more apparent.
These skeins are all from the same batch - but due to the number of processes they are all quite different. I recommend alternating skeins if you desire a more even result.
Matt and squashy, this is a singles spun yarn, that knits at a 4ply gauge. It's perfect for accessories and garments (not socks!!). (This base may look a little kinky in the skein, rest assured it lies flat and smooth when knitted up!)
Fibre content: 100% superwash merino
Yardage: 366 metres / 400 yards
Recommended knitting needle size: 2.25 – 4.00 mm for garments and accessories (not socks!)
Wash carefully by hand in cool water with a few drops of clear unscented dish washing liquid (if needed). Dry flat in shade.
I try hard to take photos that accurately represent the colour of the yarn, but please note that screens all show colour a little differently. If you have questions about colours, please ask, and I will do my best to describe them for you!
