A surprisingly nuanced charcoal-purple. Dubh is the color of black hair, the night, raven’s feathers, and coal. Shimmering with blue, purple, and brown undertones in the right light, this colorway offers a subtle chance to stand out on the dark end of the spectrum.
This colorway is part of our Dathannaseries, inspired by the Irish language and its words for colors. Kettle-dyed with carefully-chosen undertones, we’ve made poetic interpretations of the subtle nuances ofdathanna, or colors, as they’re understood and usedas Gaeilge.These colorways are all more-or-less subtly variegated, so if you’re trying to avoid color pooling, we recommend alternating two skeins in your project. We do our best to hand-match skeins in each order, but due to our small dye batches and the natural movement of dye in a kettle, we can’t guarantee exact color alignment matches from skein to skein. Please wash your yarn or finished objects in cold water with a designated wool wash to avoid bleeding.
