About this Color
This skein of is part of our Handpainted Collection - which offers gorgeous pools of the colors we love on a semi-solid background. These are perfect when you want extra pops of color, and many of them coordinate with our gradients!
*The Violet Hour Handpaint* is a favorite phrase from T.S. Eliot:
At the violet hour, the evening hour that strives
Homeward, and brings the sailor home from sea,
The typist home at teatime, clears her breakfast, lights
Her stove, and lays out food in tins.

Notes about Knitcircus Yarns
- Because of our unique dyeing process, many of our darker colors appear heathered, with small light spots sprinkled throughout. This heathering is normal.
- Care for this yarn is to hand or machine wash cold (delicate cycle), dry flat. Our yarns are colored using professional-grade acid dyes.
- We’ve made every effort to photograph the color accurately, but appearance may vary depending on your monitor settings.
