Prof P is a plummy, purple shade. When I was little and we played Cludo, I always wanted to be Prof. Plum, not for any deep, feminist reasons of wanting to be a renowned academic, but simply because of the colour.
Each and every hank will be different because of the dyeing method used, and if using for a larger project I would strongly suggest alternating hanks when working.
Each 100g hank of Aran weight yarn contains approximately 166m of 85% merino / 15% donegal nep.
Please note: All the merino that I dye comes from sheep that do not undergo mulesing
