An overload of purple yarn

I wanted to dye some purple.
I am not a purple fan so I had some trouble picking purples I liked.

My favourite is the one on the left here (not the pinky one, that's soft haze, which does not have a huge wool content so you never know what it will dye like), why? it is a wool/acrylic blend and I love that you get this softness from the acrylic. It knits beautifully too.
The one next to it is very similar in dyed colours, but is 100% pure wool.
