I decided to stop everything and dye up a new colorway inspired by the beautiful flower that is their national symbol, the sunflower.
I dyed it on my Buttery Soft DK base, which is made of 45% baby alpaca, 45% extra-soft 19.5 micron merino, and 10% silk, and it really lives up to its name!
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.

Tonal Colorway with Speckles
245 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
45% baby alpaca / 45% extra-fine merino / 10% silk

Sunflower would go beautifully with Freedom Blue or with Afremov's Farewell to Anger.
