Fyberspates produced a special yarn for the occasion that is drop-dead gorgeous and I couldn't resist. I knew, from the pictures and description, that it was going to be pretty, but it's much, much nicer than I thought it could possibly be.

with this imprinted on the side:
Inside, wrapped in tissue was the skein of yarn and a certificate:
20% Silk, 5% Stellina (the silver bits)
