I first saw this colorway on a destash page. Sadly it was already sold. So I stalked the etsy site until I found it again...in the already sold section.
But you see, I read the fine print on the sold page and saw the seller had more available, so contact was made.
Then fiber arrived, very quickly I might add.
Purples, greens, and browns!
You see the blue here...it's really not that blue, more purple which you can see on the original sale page link below. I tried many pictures to capture it, with no success. This is in daylight too. But who cares, I still love it.
I am a wee bit nervous as it is a superwash roving. Superwash = very, very slick spinning. I've been spinning some samples in superwash and trying to get the twist just so has been a bit trying. I know I'm not ready for my silky and bamboo blended fibers yet. I need more practice on the BFL's, combed merino tops, and some Falkland fibers. They won't jump out of my hands when they are in front of the wheel.

A little bit more time at the wheel, and I hope to be spinning this soon! 8 oz, hmmm maybe more singles. I did love spinning them.
