Rhyolite Robins Egg - On a recent trip Yellowstone National Park we saw a cliff along the Yellowstone River with blue streaks in it (third image). I developed this colorway to reflect these robins egg blue streaks among the gray and tan rocky layers. Being a science-y kind of person, I consulted with a geologist friend and discovered that the rocks are rhyolite lava flows. The blue coloration is likely due to 'hydrothermal alteration' the upward percolation hot fluids over many thousands of years.
Please see my website for the images that inspired this colorway: http://www.ravenridgefiber.com/.
My yarns and fibers are hand painted in small batches. Minor variations between and within dyelots are part of their charm. The images show a typical representative of this colorway. This yarn captures this color richness with short color runs to minimize pooling.
On my screen, the colors in the image closely match the colors in the fiber, but your screen may be different.
The yarn was dyed and stored in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
