The 3 batts above remind me of a winter sky...blue and grey with clouds or snow...remind me because we have had an unseasonably warm winter with little snow.
The yarn was spun and then plied with a metallic blue thread.
This yarn consists of cream and grey natural colored Shetland wool and blue dyed Shetland wool (by Katie), some blue/purple fine wool, nepps, soy silk, firestar, and recycled soda bottles. Yes, soda bottles...it is a shiny soft white fiber...amazing stuff.
Winter sky describes today...grey clouds this morning...snow flurries at noon...blue sky with white wispy clouds this afternoon!
