Nightshades DK

Now on Sale!

Ten delicate shades of black created for every mood and marbled with a dusting of colour. This is a 3-ply American cormo and wool combination which forms a light and airy DK weight yarn that is soft and distinct.

Featuring: talk radio, dashboard, last call, vcr, insomnia, street light, cinder, fever dream, 12:57 and static. (We adore the colour names!). The colours, being so black based, are very hard to photograph accurately so here is a little guide to help:

cinder [marbled with orange]
dashboard
[marbled with medium blue]
fever dream [marbled with red]
insomnia [marbled with olive]
last call [marbled with light blue]
static [marbled with white]
street light [marbled with yellow]

talk radio [marbled with purple]
vcr [marbled with green]


Nightshades was inspired by the deep shadows that dance on your ceiling at night. Sometimes sleeplessness can bring about unexpected inspiration. At Harrisville Designs, we think, live, breathe, and sometimes dream in colour ratios. Thus began the journey to create a palette that celebrates the strange beauty of night.

This yarn is spun as a springy 3-ply. It is light and perfect for a heavy wear garment, or a light accessory.

Grown in Montana, Scoured in Texas, Dyed in Philadelphia, and Spun in New Hampshire. Beautiful speckled blacks in ten varieties!
Loop is proud to be the UK stockist of this wonderful and very unique yarn.
