As a Shakespeare fanatic -- there's no better term for me -- I'm challenging myself to create colorways inspired by the characters and the plays.

I handdyed this fiber in shades of dusty purple and black to represent the tortured and tormented Moor of Shakespeare's Othello. This skein is 70/30% merino and silk, and dyed with professional acid dyes in my home. If you'd like it on any of my other sock bases, convo and let me know.

The yarn was finished with Soak and comes from a pet-friendly, non-smoking home. Though the animals are not permitted to sleep in the yarn, a stray hair may tag along. Fair warning. :)

Also keep in mind that, although I have attempted to accurately capture the colors in the yarn, all monitors vary so the skein you receive may not look exactly the same.

Any finished project should be handwashed in cool water and dried flat.

If you would like this wound into a center pull ball, please let me know in the notes to seller at checkout!
