I LOVE Quantum Dots (and the explanation behind it - love science)!

I like the Golden Mean Sheatland as well as the Quantum Dots.

Love Porpoise Fur's beautiful Shetland roving called Golden Mean.4 ounces of lovely lavender, golden brown and pale yellow. It would be a dream to spin and very soft and light once you are finished.
I shared Porpoise Fur on Facebook.

I'd have to go with "Quantum Dots", too. Cool concept!

Heather said...

I love the idea of the two-color shawl SAL. I'm a sucker for putting two interesting colorways together and making them work...

Lucia Gonzales said...

Love the blogposts. I just learned to spin and now need to learn to ply. Quantum dots is beautiful, but I probably would have practiced a 2-ply if I spin it, but the blog post reminded me to think about the color wheel before plying to get the best effects

The Snow Shadows, Salamander, and Roses variegated colorways are my favorites! Beautiful colors! The semi-solid London Fog is also lovely. Oh, how I wish it was raining instead of snowing here.

The "Two Color Shawl Spin-along/Knit-along" is what I'd buy. Being able to get lovely colours on a choice of bases & have mutual support from others would be fantastic.

I love that Rachel has so many types of fiber! From baby alpaca to silk hankies to Wensleydale. I recently ordered some Corriedale in the Spice Market colorway for the Two Color SAl/KAL. I LOVE the Holly Walk colorway and have been eyeing Euglena and Parrot. As I biologist, I also love that many of Rachel's colors are inspired by biological dyes.
