Black Narcissus stars Deborah Kerr in this intense psychological drama directed by british director Michael Powell, who also directed The Edge of the World, filmed on the island of Foula off the west coast of Shetland. Powell shot many of the scenes in Black Narcissus against deep purple-black skies and mountains. Black Narcissus is an equally intense shade, a dark purple with hints of black, the smoothness of the yarn creating a wonderfully reflective colourway.
Hand wash with care in cool water using a gentle wool wash and dry flat.
As these yarns are hand-dyed please be aware that there will be subtle variation between dye lots. Because of this please be sure to purchase enough yarn for your project.
