Galadriel's Gift is heavily speckled and will be an adventure to knit with every stitch different. The colors are sky blue, bright blue, spring green, lavender, a bit of yellow, a bit of chartreuse, and an abundance of blue and purple speckles.
As for the name, the colors remind me of a stunningly beautiful garden, and that made me think of the box of soil and seeds that Galadriel gave Sam in The Lord of the Rings which he used to replenish the Shire.
Like most, this colorway is a little more muted on Buttery Soft DK than on many of my other yarn bases due to the alpaca and silk content.
Please note that this is NOT a superwash yarn. That means it can felt with agitation and changes in temperature, so it should be washed by hand in cool water. On the other hand, it can be fulled.
