In light of that, I decided to incorporate a song from one of my favorite musicals--Fiddler on the Roof--and name it after that. Introducing Sunrise, Sunset. Many thanks to Rachel who suggested the idea.
The song is sung by the parents at the wedding of their eldest daughter. They are wondering how the years have passed so quickly, and I know that is a sentiment that many of us have felt.
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.

Splashed & Speckled Colorway
245 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
45% baby alpaca / 45% extra-fine merino / 10% silk

Sunrise, Sunset would look great with Burgundy Rose, Paris, and Eggplant.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit using Sunrise, Sunset on this yarn base to give you an idea of how it can work up.
