This skein of yarn reminds me of a Chameleon. Some species of chameleons are able to change colors. Chameleons change colors to camouflage themselves or to give a social signal. I love the way this yarn changes colors with the way I plied the yarn. The colors in this yarn include blue, green, orange and yellow.
Here is a listing for a 3-ply skein of handpainted, handspun yarn. For this skein of yarn I used a Navajo ply technique. I handpaint all of my fiber using Eco Friendly dyes and I set the color with steam and Citric Acid. I carefully mix all of my colors to create the colorways you see. All of the fiber is spun by me on my Ashford Traveler or my Ashford Elizabeth spinning wheel.

Falkland wool has an incredible soft hand and is extremely white. Falkland spins up beautifully and dyes very nicely. Falkland is not a breed of sheep but is named after the islands in comes from. This wool comes from the Falkland islands off of the coast of Argentina. Since there are no know sheep diseases on the island the sheep are never chemically dipped and the wool meets organic standards. It is a combination of breeds such as Polwarth, Corriedale, Merino, Romney and a few other breeds.
