The yarn is almost purple, or blue violet-very pretty color. The yarn is great to knit with; has great stitch definition and the mitts I made with it are very soft and squishy not stiff. A great purchase!

I love the color and the easy in using a stitch marker that doesn't dangle-nicely made and very pleasing!
