Dyepot Stories: Rabun Gap

She asked for purple with blue undertones.  Of course, I only had purple with red undertones.  Several color mixes later, still no end in sight.  I slept on the task, then went at it again.  The final color mix gave me this:

Rabun Gap

The blue purple she wanted.  Tonal with hues moving from very dark to medium shades of purple.

I was happy to do this for her.  For Sharon, one of my biggest cheerleaders.  The fact that I don’t have a shop didn’t stop her from making a request.  She wanted this, she thought I could do it and she asked in a way that only friends could ask and not have you tell them no.  LOLOL!   Because of her gentle insistence, in addition to a colorway I’m proud of, I got the chance to build on my dyeing portfolio.  Win, win for us both I’d say.

Meet Rabun Gap.

    My friend reading this with me is a purple connoisseur and she said immediately: “OMG I’M OBSESSED”

      I love her already … purple is my favourite color. It was kinda hard to give that skein up. 😀

        hers too! I figure that means you have to dye another for your personal stash 😉
