    It looks like it was made from kimono silk where you can still see the pattern that would have been painted onto it in the gorgeous speckles.

    “Buttercup sherbet”; reminds me of fluffy candy floss with a creamy buttery element. O

    I’m thinking native Irish birds, it has the same colours as the feathers of a bullfinch.

  • Trina Molony: September 16, 2020

    Peach Melba Sunday

  • Ria: September 16, 2020

    How about Hyacinth Sunset. The blue speckled remind me of Hyacinth flowers, while the pink and peach reminds me of Sunset skies.

  • Emma Flynb: September 16, 2020

    So beautiful! I would name it “Cloudberry” as it looks like a beautiful berry Irish summer evening sky!

    Would love to make a Hitchhiker scarf from it! I’m currently using Townhouse Yarns “Hearth” to make my first Hitchhiker… It’s beautiful to work with!

    Sunshine with clouds
