I named this colorway Party Like It's 2021 in mid 2020. I guess that doesn't need much explanation right now, but I'm still waiting for the party. This fiber is made entirely of speckles, but on the top as opposed to the yarn, the speckles gain an Impressionistic feeling. I used magenta, yellow, gray-blue, blue, berry, purple, and black speckles.
I dyed it on a new blend made of 70% BFL and 30% seacell. BFL is both and strong. It's great for socks and shawls. This particular BFL seems softer to me than the standard 25-ish micron. The other 30% is made of SeaCell, which is similar to silk in softness, but it's actually made from seaweed and eucalyptus. It's high in minerals and vitamins like vitamin E. It's also highly renewable.
If you would like a spindle to go with your hand-dyed top, you can find one in the Tools and Equipment section of my shop.

MY GIFT TO YOU
Also, as a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
