Yarn porn

(Yeah, that title ought to raise my google rank. Or not.)

Remember the Endless Summer Hydrangea dye job? No?

*cue flashback music*

First we had:


Then it became:


And now it is:


Ta dah!

A closeup:


The last photo is as close to the true colors as I can capture. I was working with afternoon sunlight that reflects off a building and streams into my office for about 10 whole minutes. I would say the base color is bluegreylavender, and there are highlights of violet, grass green, and pale indigo. You can barely make out the blue Angelina glimmer, but it looks wonderfully sparkly in good light. I did not skimp on the Angelina! The fiber composition is roughly 80/20 Polwarth/Angora, and it is mmmm, soft, with very little halo. (More halo might come out with knitting and wear, though.) It’s 4.5 oz of 2-ply yarn, about fingering to sport weight.

I will post this yarn for sale in a few days. I just haven’t had a chance to measure the yardage or make labels yet.

  1. Very nice. I, too, love the colors in the yarn but wasn’t too sure about them in the first photo. You have inspired me to be more adventurous in dyeing, blending.

  2. Those colors are wonderful. VERY subtle, but just the right amount of bling. And really… there is nothing that angora can’t improve. :)
