Contest – Name the Silk & Silver Yarn

ETA:  The Contest is over…..click here for results.
I’d like to introduce to you my new yarn.  It is a blend of Merino/Silk/Nylon and REAL SILVER!  It’s a sock yarn, but has great drape (not to mention those sparkles), so would also be really fabulous for scarves and shawls. 4 new colors of Silk & Silver

The problem? I need a name for the yarn base. I’m looking for something that will be catchy and memorable, and fits in my Tiger/Animal theme (although that isn’t crucial), and is unique. Yeah, I know….tall order. To clarify, I need to name the yarn base, not a particular colorway.  Some of my existing yarn bases are ‘Tabby’, ‘Tiger Twist’, ‘Tiger Cub’, ‘Siberian Worsted’, ‘Wooly Mammoth’, Cougar, and ‘Panda’.  As I said, it doesn’t HAVE to be a tiger/big cat name, just somehow fit in the shop theme, or be so cool that I just HAVE TO name it that! Pop down to the comments section of this post, and submit your ideas. If I choose your idea (you must be the first to post that name), you’ll win a skein of the new Silver & Silk yarn dyed just for you!  (So be sure you leave a valid way to contact you when you leave your comment.) My newsletter peeps got first peek and naming rights.  Wanna be in the loop too?  Get the newsletter by signing up in that brown box in the upper right  of the page.  About once a month; and contains sneak peeks, first dibs, and exclusive offers.
