This beautiful hand dyed yarn was inspired an abandoned beauty in the form of a rusted old truck of interesting color, forgotten in a shed in North Dakota. The truck itself was a blue, with the engine area a deep purple and a yellowish-cream colored door just happened to be laying against it. The combination just instantly said yarn color to me!

Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
