This colorway was inspired by one of my favorite paintings by Monet: "The Portal of Rouen Cathedral in Morning Light." Here's a link to the painting. He spent 2 years painting the same cathedral at different times of day, and some have called it the ultimate series in impressionism.
The colors include dark blue, medium blue, soft lilac, eggplant, and a bit of chartreuse with a generous amount of speckles.
I dyed it on an incredibly luxurious top I got that is made of 50% baby camel and 50% tussah silk. This is a great blend for a more experienced spinner. You will want to be comfortable spinning merino, and then this would make a good next step.
