Turquoise Parrot Blues

Awhile ago I spun up some merino wool hand dyed by the Yarn Wench in color "Turquoise Parrot". I focused on the teal/peacock colors in that one, along with the oranges and yellows. Well, I've spun this color again, but this time focused on the dark blue shades instead. The resulting skeins are a bit darker and bluer than the previous two. Here are "Turquoise Parrot Blues" -


They are both on etsy now.

Yesterday I also received my Falkland wool from Natalie (cloudlover) so will be spinning single plys today. If I stay motivated, I should have 7 new skeins for tomorrow! Then, I will return to the art yarns.

I had been wanting the parrot blues for a while too, also glad I got it! I love that orange poofy stuff you spin in, can't for the life of me figure out what it is, but it's really really cool.

thanks!
the orange yarn (and the chartruese-y green in the others) is PUNK yarn. originally i thought it was skacel, but the last i found was a different yarn company. either way, it's called PUNK and i'm having trouble finding it now, so i may not be using it after i use up what i have left. it IS one of my favorites to use!
