Sometime recently a customer told me I needed to create a deep purple that wasn’t too bright / vibrant / intense. So, I set about to do that, and Eggplant is the result.
Deep and sort of murky, with stronger blue undertones, it’s a rich, beautiful colorway. It’s reminiscent of the deep bluish-purple eggplants, rather than their counterparts with redder undertones.
It’s another one of those not-a-neutral-neutral that so many other colors compliment. Check it out:
Seriously. Roussillon? My Mom was here working with me and swore that Eggplant will go with just about everything. To prove it, she pulled the Roussillon to show that, indeed, somehow it does compliment Eggplant. I was surprised and would not have chosen a burnt orange to go with a deep blue-purple. But, it really does work.
There are so many more colors that it compliments, but I’m running out of time before NYSW to get things done and sneak peaks posted so I had to stop pulling yarn out to photograph.
