Concord - Arcus #5
The colour story:
This is a deep grapey purple that coordinates with all of the other Arcus #5 colourways. It is the deep bluish grape purple that you think of when you think of grape juice or a big bunch of black grapes - darker than royal purple but very very rich.
As with all hand-made things, there is always some variation between skeins even within dyelots. If you plan to make a larger project, blend your skeins through transition rows.
The yarn story:
Arcus #5 is a soft and strong Shetland wool. It is not superwash and requires gentle handling during washing. It is of a medium softness but has good definition and solid wearability. Think here of jumpers, hats and cowls that perhaps also feature some colourwork but that will see some more challenging conditions.
Each skein weighs approximately 100g
