Gritty, hardboiled, and full of drama, the film noir style of cinema is made up of a variety of themes, narrative structures, and stories. However, one common theme runs throughout: film noir movies are all filmed in black and white, with an emphasis on low lighting, narrative told through shadows and high contrasts, and a rough, gruff approach to storytelling. While there are many examples of the style, including modern "neo-noir" films, the best known examples are from the 1940s-50s. As essential to a vintage film collection as a good classic grey yarn is to a crafter, film noir is a captivating style that impresses with its minimalist visuals, Inspired by the great films of the style, this multi-hued grey mixes several shades of charcoal, silver, and gunmetal with a heavy sprinkle of black speckles. It's a celebration of monochromatic light and dark that looks classic on it's own or beautifully supports a more colorful companion. This mix of warm and cool greys gives a beautiful, random flow of color that resists pooling.

I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
