A strong yellow, buí is the color of sunbeams, gold, cornmeal, leather, dried fish, and tanned skin. Although the word can be found idiomatically used as “ugly,” this colorway brims with character and a certain crooked-grin charm. Buí is a good mid-tone in a set or a strong primary color on its own. Shifts between bright and tawny yellow-gold.
This colorway is part of our Dathanna series, 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 of dathanna, or colors, as they’re understood and used as 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.
