Ballot Magic is our custom colorway in support of the emPower People 2020 project and to make the Purple emPower People cowl/scarf/bandana from casapinka. A crochet pattern can be found HERE from Laverne Burton.The pattern can also be downloaded from the emPower People 2020 website. This rich purple reminds us that we make magic when we vote. Our ballot matters and we should always use it judiciously. Vote every time and you will see magic happen. A portion of the profits from this yarn on the Magic and Charmed bases will be donated to a charity once a decision has been made on what charities the emPower People coordinators wish to support.
Also check out Witching Hour and Hyacinth for other purples in our collection. A tip feature has been added to our checkout page. All tips will be donated to our charity fund.
*Note: the patterns call for DK (our Charmed base) weight yarn. If you want to make this using the Magic base, you will need to hold the yarn doubled.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
