Lerwick Harbour - Cumulonimbus Top
The colour story:
Truthfully, I've never been to Shetland. I did live in the East Neuk of Fife for several years when I was younger so I know the smell and moods of the North Sea but never *that* harbour. It doesn't mean I can't imagine a moody, deep and brooding harbour of dark and light teals, grey and black with flashes of foamy white in places and then make that into a colourway.
As with all hand-made things, there is always some variation between skeins even within dyelots. If you plan to make a larger project and like a consistent look, blend your skeins as you spin/ply.
The fibre story:
Delightfully fluffy and superbly lustrous 50% silk and 50% superwash merino roving ready for spinning.
Each skein of hand dyed fluff weighs approximately 110 grams.
