Shangri-La in Nisus

Sorry, this item has sold.

Nisus, in Greek Mythology the king of Megara, enemy of King Minos. He was gifted a lock of purple hair on his head that made him invincible and his city, impenetrable. His daughter, Scylla, fell in love with Minos and decided to betray her father by cutting off his lock of hair so Minos could enter the city and take her for his wife. Zeus turns Nisus into a sea eagle to preserve his life, and Scylla into a sea bird/monster as punishment. THAT Scylla, of Scylla and Charybdis.

So, purple hair, don't care.

This is a multi-tonal purple that is dyed in three steps. First, twisted skeins are dipped in a raspberry wash to dye. Next, the skeins are undone and re-twisted and placed into a lavender blue. Last, The skeins are untwisted and bunched up and given a clear purple finish. The full process takes 4 hours.

Shangri-La is a 65/20/15% Superwash Merino/Silk/Yak laceweight singles with 872 yds per 100g skein.
