Packaged this morning...

This is Dragonfly over black BFL and silk - I wasn't sure it would work but it seems to have come out rather well. I need to do more yarn in this too.

A bit more Magenta Mouse, on white bfl/silk, and oatmeal in both plain and with silk.

Northern Lights over black bfl/silk. This colourway has been with me since the earliest dyeing-to-sell, and it's still popular. It looks like just the primary colours, but on spinning all the secondaries and tertiaries appear like magic!

Dorset Horn, dyed in Grail. Yes, it really is that brilliant! I can see this making fabulous socks. Dorset Horn is a crisp springy Down-type wool, and ideal for things that need to wear well - like socks.

The same colour, muted a little over grey Shetland/silk.

Peacock, on both white and oatmeal bfl.

A new colourway - Noctilucent. This reminded me of the colours in noctilucent clouds, which I've not managed to see yet but will some time. On Dorset Horn and grey Shetland/silk.

And finally, Gothick dyed over the lovely natural moorit Manx. This is such a strongly coloured wool (at least in top form) that I have to be quite careful on which colourways it will take - blues just don't work at all, greens are excellent, and purples come up beautifully muted.
