100% wool from the Dorr Mill Store.
Eggplant is a great bleeder in the dye pot and can be married with other wool to create deep colors to use as lively black fur, as can be seen in our Vermont Cow Design. It fluffs nicely so that it will even hold together on a #2 cut and also tears nicely as well for ultra wide cuts. Another option is to wash and cut it into strips and use as is for a night sky, wizard's cloak, or a dark background.
