Apparently the original Tyrian purple colour dyes were extracted from a
mollusk found on the shores of the city of Tyre in ancient Phoenicia. Purple
became a symbol of royalty because only the very wealthy could afford
it. Luckily times have changed and you can buy garments in the widest
sprectrum of purples from our Ebay store (for very affordable prices!)
These wild mohair jumpers from the 1980s feature deep inky shades. You can find them listed on our ebay site here: VioletPurpleBlue
These jumpers are the perfect attire for a sing-a-long with Sheb Wooley from 1958!
