Whimsical Designs for Rug Hooking
Purple Royalty is a challenge to keep in stock. It's a lovely shade of Violet. It reads as black when hooked and punches bright and light colors when used as a background. I have personally used it in 3 of my rugs and I love the look. It's a wonderful background or border. See how in my Sunflower where I used Purple Royalty for the border reads as black but is much richer than a black would be. . It really created a beautiful border and provided nice contrast with the background "Diane's Snow".
It would also mix nicely with Electric Crow for a little more movement. They are dyed over the same wool but with different dye colors.
