Harrisville Designs nightshades is a glorious collection of 10 black colourways created for every mood and marbled with a dusting of colour. This is a DK weight, 3-plied woollen spun American Cormo and wool yarn that is soft, springy, light and airy, perfect for a heavy wear garment or a light accessory. Gorgeous in plain stocking or garter stitch, as well as forming fluid cables and beautiful lace or textural stitches.
After searching for nearly two years for the ideal fibre for this project, Harrisville Designs found a Montana-grown Cormo that was perfect. Originally developed in Tasmania, American Cormo sheep produce a fibre that is long, crimpy and fine but also takes dye well enough to produce deep black.

Harrisville Designs nightshades was inspired by the deep shadows that dance on the ceiling at night developing a palette that celebrates the strange beauty of night.
