A dark gray laced with purple and green, and limited bits of red; like tromping through graveyards at midnight in fishnet and lace while belting out 'undead undead undead.' Exquisite Corpse was inspired by trashy vampire and splatterpunk horror of the 1990s - most particularly Poppy Z. Brite - and the eponymous word game.
Base: Carson (DK) 100% Superwash Merino; 250 yards / 115 grams
All indie-dyed yarn works up differently depending on gauge, project size, and needle/hook size. Swatches are shown in sock base, from a previous dye batch, to give an average idea of the colorway.
This colorway has a wonderful subtlety. The grey is full of hues like oiled metal when it catches the light. It’s wonderfully soft and works up beautifully.
