If it's the red/grey one, I would say it's more of a dark grey than black, you won't be disappointed with them the 2 I got were the light ones, I've gotten the all cashmere ones as well. and the 90 merino and 10 cashmere. they are all wonderful to have. I use the one made of camel. which they don't have right now, I've bought about 15 of them you can't go wrong, The all lambswool are very soft to the touch, I've been to Scotland where they make them they are a family run business since the late 1700's,
The red/gray has dark gray stripes.
