Melisandre.  A very saturated, goth-like rich blue-red with black overtones.  This color is perfectly intense. 

This hand-dyed color is available on all our yarn bases, click here to learn more. Shop updates are uploaded weekly, so if we are out of your color choice, check back soon.

We have taken great effort to ensure that our photos are as true to color as possible.  However, due to the hand-dyed process and differences in yarn bases, variations in color and patterning may occur.  Your individual monitor settings can also cause the appearance of the color on the screen to differ from our actual photograph.

For best results, we recommend alternating skeins as you work. Purchase adequate amounts to complete your project.

    worsted weight yarn, Melisandre color

    Polka Dot Sheep has the most amazing selection to choose from. The colors are so rich and have depth. If I'm investing in yarn for a sweater, I want it to be special. This truly is! Well done PDS!

    Beautiful color

    I bought the sport weight in this yarn and can’t believe how lovely the color is. It’s so much richer than what shows up on my computer. I may be buying more of it.? I bought a Shawl quantity, but I may decide to do a sweater

    Scrumptious Yarn

    I have become a bit of a tenderfoot adduct. Your sock yarn is beautiful and Melisandre is no exception. Masterful dyed with subtle nuances that take it steps above other yarns. ❤️

    I love Polka Dot Sheep's yarns. Their colorways are beautiful, their service is beyond reproach. This yarn will probably be a halibut hat by Caitlin Hunter or a cabled hat. Can't wait to start knitting with this yarn.

    This yarn is heavenly to knit with! I needed more to finish a sweater, was sweating the dye lot issue, and you came through with perfect color matching.

    I am very happy with this yarn, it meets Polka Dot Sheep's standards of excellence. As always their service is fast and efficient. Can't wait to cast on the hat that this yarn was purchased for.
