Belladonna

Deadly Nightshade is one of the most well known and most sinister reputation as a poisonous plant. It is also one of the oldest recorded botanical poisons with references going back as far as 1550 B.C. It is found through out history, it is named Atropa Belladonna in honor of the third and eldest Greek Fate, Atropos, associated as a common plaything and ingredient for witches. Rumored to be the poison that killed Roman Emperor Augustus, and part of Venetian medieval beauty routine, putting drops of atropine to dilate women’s pupils. Nightshade contains high levels of atropine and scopolamine, both are so toxic that the smallest amount ingested can cause hallucinations, convulsions and seizures, even touching the plant can even raise blisters on the skin. The berries of the Nightshade are a highly glossed green turning to dark purple black in an alluring deep color with a seductively sweet taste unlike the usual bitter taste of dangerous plants. Eating one berry may not kill you, but the berry right next to it could. Belladonna charms you into eating the sweet fruit so that it can use your body to nourish and protect the seeds so that it may grow on after your death.

While each color has its own specific recipe every skein is individually hand dyed and hand painted which may cause colors to vary in distribution.
If using more than one skein in a project I recommend alternating skeins.
