Ube on Passport from Destination Yarn is the ultimate sock yarn with 8 ply construction making it extremely strong while also being very lofty and smooth. The high merino content (80%!) means that it is also very soft and takes the dye beautifully.
This beautiful Ube color is an amazing light purple color with some light speckles too. This colorway is part of Destination Yarn's Hawaii Collection and is designed to mix and match with any of the other colors in the collection but works really well with Maui or Honolulu.
