This gorgeous color was inspired by an incredible sunset while visiting some abbey ruins in Doolin, Ireland, near the Cliffs of Moher. The Celtic crosses created the perfect focal point. It’s a cute little town that you should definitely visit if you ever make it to Ireland.
Merlot colored purple mingles with golden yellow and fiery red with just a bit of orange where the red and yellow meets to fill this variegated skein, bringing the sunset to life. This would make an amazing shawl, scarf or even a fun pair of socks.

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.
