Tropical Yarn

I'm destashing.  Really, I am.  But a yarn showed up in my mailbox yesterday and I won't apologize for buying it as it's just so darned pretty.

It's from Wolle's Yarn Creations, 100% cotton, 105 grams, 480 yards, approximately a light fingering weight.


This colorway is called "Tropical".  The beauty of this yarn, well one of the beauties, is that it gradually changes colors with only one repeat.  There are 4 unplied strands and if you enlarge the picture you can see them clearly. 

I expect that I'll make a shawl with this yarn, but I won't decide on a pattern for a while.  Until I finish up a few projects it will be sitting in plain view and admired.  Sometimes you just have to give in to temptation!

ooh, that is gorgeous. I've been contemplating that yarn too -- did you see the Yarn Harlot's woven scarf in a pink version of this yarn? Anyway, I'll be curious to hear how you like it. Yeah, it's tempting.
