This month's Flash Mob is dyed by Rhichard Devrieze Yarns and is inspired by the book Frankenstein (1818) by Mary Shelley.
"His yellow skin scarcely covered the work of muscles and arteries beneath; his hair was of a lustrous black, and flowing; his teeth of a pearly whiteness; but these luxuriances only formed a more horrid contrast with his watery eyes, that seemed almost of the same colour as the dun white sockets in which they were set, his shrivelled complexion and straight black lips."
Frankenstein is dyed on Rhichard's Fynn base, a high quality, worsted weight, machine washable merino. Each kit contains:
- One 84 g/160 m skein of blackest black
- Four 42 g /80 m midi (much bigger than a mini) ghoulish colour skeins
- A laser engraved wood button, designed by Diane Fillinger of Brickbubble
- Treats to enjoy while contemplating what to make with Frankenstein
