For this Secret Stash No. 1, we worked from inspirational images from fresh, tropical and citrus fruits. Sweet and sour. With names like Lychee Gummy, Purple Mangosteen, and Dragonfruit Limeade, the colours are punchy! The shawl sample was knit with a test colourway, but you’ll basically get the same effects using Purple Mangosteen.
This yarn is the same specifications as our Tough Love Sock yarn and is a 3-ply yarn spun from a blend of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. As a point of interest, unraveling the sock blank produces a more speckled and spotted effect.

This colorway is FABULOUS!!!! I love it. I haven’t knitted it up yet but I cannot get over the bright colors & the speckles or the shading.
