The one that caught my eye today was BFL Sock Yarn - Hand Dyed 75/25 BFL/Nylon Fingering Weight Yarn in Grand Canyon Colorway.

WOW...the Wandering Wool Etsy site is beautiful. I don't think there is a color I didn't like. Whoever did the photo shoot for the yarn knows how to bring out the colors. Whoever dye the yarn did a wonderful job of choosing the right colors.
