The colour story:
The smoking jacket is the iconic garment associated with billiards, libraries, pipes and after dinner drinks, all classy leisure, all the time. Deep reds blend with creamy white, tobacco brown and black.
As with all hand-made things, there is always some variation between skeins even within dyelots. If you plan to make a larger project and like a consistent look, blend your skeins as you spin/ply.
