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.
40% baby alpaca, 40% merino, 20% silk
DK/8ply weight, single ply construction
Care: Gentle hand wash only in lukewarm water. Air dry flat in shade.
Silky and warm with a subtle halo, this yarn is similar to a popular colourful Japanese yarn and almost twice the length, whilst feeling softer and with less variation in yarn thickness. Baby alpaca and merino both provide softness and warmth, whilst the silk provides strength and a subtle glow. One skein of yarn is enough for a pair of women’s gloves or mittens, a hat or a small scarf/cowl.
While we try to photograph colours accurately, colours may differ in real life due to variations from monitor to monitor.
