Bellatrix | Choice of Weight | Single Skein


This colorway is named Bellatrix after the third brightest star in the constellation of Orion. The traditional name Bellatrix is from the Latin bellātrix "female warrior".

Bellatrix is a repeatable colorway. If you do not see the quantities listed that you would like for your project, send me a message and I will happily dye to order.

The color is a solid, rich black faded to a deep royal purple. Please note that depending on your device or monitor settings colors may appear slightly different than they are in person. Color also varies slightly by base, as the dye absorbs differently on different fiber content.

The old Bellatrix recipe (any ordered before 9/30/23) has been retired, this listing is for the new recipe, which will not match old lots.

Hand wash in cold water and lay flat to dry. All of our yarns are thoroughly washed and rinsed, but with all hand dyed yarns there could be some excess of dye molecules that remain. It is recommended to wash separately for the first wash to ensure no dye transfer.

All skeins of Crow and Crescent Yarn are hand dyed with love in Shoreline, WA using high quality professional acid dyes in small batches. Each skein is unique, and dye lots vary.

Thank you for supporting small business!

Ordered before and will order from this business again.

Exceeded my expectations, great quality

Beautiful yarn that was perfectly dyed!

Oh M geeh!!! My first time able to buy. So gorgeous and the colors are so deep. I’m extremely in love and will definitely buy again. Already have it wound up to start my project.

Crocheter, weaver and knitter. I buy a lot of yarn. Saw this gorgeous purple/black yarn and ordered two skeins/hanks for a new knitting project. Yarn came with great packaging, a couple stickers and a much appreciated stitch marker. Will buy again.
