Mmm Blue Hawaiin skies to match a fluffy cotton candy spinners delight! Such loft and vibrant color for such a simple tonal blend.

When I was very young I spent a summer in the hills of northern California on a peacock ranch. They're amazing creatures and your peacock angelina looks just as beautiful. I'm really wanting to learn to spin and this give-away would be my perfect way to start.
