Name This Yarn

Here's the latest off the wheel. The material was a bit challenging (higher silk content than I'm used to, and I am experimenting with a different carding process), and the yarn didn't come out as I'd like, since I'm currently on that part of the learning curve where I'm trying to get things very even. And I didn't have as much control over the color distribution as I was hoping, either. Ah, well, everything is relative and hopefully somebody will love it and give it a good home. I'm too fried to think of a name right now... what do you think?

BTW - the skeins you've been seeing on the blog can be seen/felt for sale at the upcoming North Country Fiber Fair in Watertown, SD on Sept. 20 & 21. My folks will be there with their wonderful book, and have been kind enough to offer to take my wooly stuff with them. What doesn't sell there will go up on shortly afterwards - more info will be available when the time comes.

I think you should call it 'Blue Sunset'

I love the color range, from dark pink/purple to the light blue/green

The color reminds me of an OPAL ring that I used to own. I wonder what ever happened to it.....


I want to learn to spin like you!
