Contest – Name the Silk & Silver Yarn

ETA:  The Contest is over… 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.

  42. Laurie says:

    Okay, my husband made me add the reference for Lady and the Tiger, since he didn’t get it and thinks I might be a literature geek that remembered too much from grade school. Lady and the Tiger is a terrific short story by Richard Stockton.

    Another recommendation: Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

  43. Arlene says:

    Gorgeous yarn! How about:

    Tiger Frost
    Tiger Shimmer
    Sterling Lynx

    Dang, someone already said “Snow Leopard” and “White Tiger.”

    Hm… how about

  45. Angela says:

    Twinkle of a Tiger’s eye

  46. Lynlee says:

    Someone already suggested Felis Silvestris, so I’m going with “Neofelis Nebulosa” (the scientific classification for the Clouded Leopard).

  47. Deb says:

    Hi Brooke,

    I finally got the point, it does not have to have “Tiger” in the name.

    Borealis Wolf
    Gleaming Wolf
