PARTY WITH A GAS CAN

This is a yarn inspired by Danger Days: The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys. The music videos for this album are grungy superhero roadtrip, each of the band members in distinctive colors...which also reflect the look of the Avengers toward the end of the movie, as well. Bright colors, well-worn and well-loved.

My base roving was from Aspen Leaf Fiber Farm: https://www.etsy.com/transaction/81678329
not identified as to breed, but of a springy, soft nature that reminded me of some Targhee.
The gray is carbonized bamboo, which has a lovely silky drape and is smooth as cotton.
The angelina used is transparent blue-green, like the sheen on gasoline. It's not obvious in the photos, but a dash of pretty sparkle in the actual skein.

***

I treat each of my yarns as an abstract painting--I take color and texture from my impressions of stories, characters, movies, and create a yarn, designing it from start to finish. My spinning tends to produce pillowy yarn, not spun hard but with some give.

Each skein is one of kind, using Etsy artisan roving, local fleeces, or both. They will vary in gage slightly, but are marked as "Thick-and-Thin" if it is a significant range.
