Dark Hydrangea

Hand dyed, purple-blue, intended as a solid color but is streaky - usually a desirable effect if you enjoy hand dyed thread. The color is really hard to capture, but the orange handled scissors and blue capped pen in the photo help to give a reference. My first attempt to capture the iridescent colors of blue Hydrangea flowers, and this batch turned out dark. I hope to try for a lighter version later.

Thank you all very much. I plan to buy a different color dye and keep experimenting with the Hydrangea hues.
