Hmmm.. I just bought the last 2 pacs in the local store and when I got home I noticed the label was different to my last purchase. My original batch says `Black` and this one says `Azabache Black`. I intend to add it to my stored stock to keep the dye quantity solid. A little googling says it's a purply black, and so is my original batch. I don't think it can hurt to add it, I was just asking if anyone's used it, because if it's a grey black I will exchange it.

Adjective (Spanish): azabache - m. and f. (plural: azabaches)

1. Having a jet colour; of a deep black, and often glistening, colour.


So from the looks of it it is the Spanish way to write 'jet black'.

Yeah.. I see they have 3 variants, `Black` `Azabache Black` and `Negro Black`, I'm thinking:

It just struck me as odd that the same store would have differently labelled product. I'm just going to use it.
