Glazed tones of periwinkle purple and indigo blue. Even though this has two different dye colors, it isn't variegated. Glazed means the colors smoothly transition back and forth randomly throughout the skein.

This is the last of my silk skeins...and I will not be buying more soon (they come from overseas and are more difficult to get - and more expensive - than my other yarn bases). Please keep that in mind and make sure you buy as many skeins as you'll need to complete your project.
It’s been years since I have dyed 100% silk skeins and I am having so much fun with these! I forgot how different they are from wool! They have ZERO stretch - keep that in mind if you make a garment. The yardage from my supplier says they are +/- 437 yards, but when I measured one skein (using just an Amish swift...nothing 100% accurate), I got +/- 394 yards. I am listing them as around 400 yards.

Weight: sock/fingering, 2-ply
Length/yardage: +/- 400 yards, 100g
