To capture the pale blues and greens, I went with Falkland for our fiber. It’s a location, rather than a specific breed, and the wool pool on the Falkland Islands is chosen for whiteness and fineness.
Panda is our yarn, a blend of superwash merino, rayonized bamboo, and nylon. I don’t care for it so much in socks, so I decided to dye it for a shawl, as the yarn drapes beautifully. The picture below shows the color order….lime to deeper green alternating with pale blue skies deepening to clear blue ocean. Each color segment is roughly the same length, but honestly, this was eyeballed.
The method used (for the sock yarn AND the fiber) is ‘blended gradient’, which means I let neighboring colors touch, mingle, and make new transition colors. So when knitted, this will be semi-solid at times, and variegated at others.
Tiger Club is currently full, but you are welcome to drop me a line if you’d like to be on the waiting list.
