#parmaviolets simply HAD to be included in my #retrosweets collection!


The British sweets, created in 1946 by the Derbyshire company Swizzels Matlow, with a slightly soapy, floral taste (that incidently flavours gin AMAZINGLY!) are a firm favourite in certain circles, but I also happen to know a few of you personally (You KNOW who you are!) who won't be able to get enough of the purple hues they have inspired in this colourway!


Go on ... you know you want to!


*This is a repeated colourway, but due to the techniques used in the dye process, colours will vary slightly throughout the hanks and between batches. Alternate hanks from different dye batches when working up larger projects.
