Before I ordered I called the store because I wanted a dark blue to knit a neck warmer for my husband. They were friendly and helpful and guaranteed me the Paris Night was a beautiful dark blue. I do realize these are hand dyed but I was really disappointed in the color. Very little of the yarn is dark blue, the majority of it is purple, very purple. Hoping my husband isn't disappointed in his purple neck warmer for Valentines Day. Shipping was fast and I will order from this company again.
