Purple Sea Urchin is a variegated yarn with purple, violet, green and hints of hot pink and beige.
Originally the fourth instalment of the 2014 Simply Sock Club, Purple Sea Urchin first appeared on Blue Chip Stocking.
Blue Chip Stocking:
70% superwash Blue Faced Leicester, 20% silk, 10% cashmere
Care: Gentle machine wash in cold water, although hand washing is always recommended.
Air dry flat in the shade.
Blue Faced Leicester is well known for its soft durability and natural shine, the silk provides strength and extra shine, and the cashmere lends softness and extra warmth. The moderate twist of this yarn means good stitch definition. One skein is enough for a luxurious pair of women’s medium socks, gloves/mittens, hat, or small shawl/wrap.
