It's like all the best colors of the ripest peach you've ever had. It makes my mouth water!

I think I've made my feelings clear about handspun....I am lacking in the spinning, plying, carding, ect. gene and I just don't get why anyone would spin it when you can buy it in a nice neat, plump skein.

THIS makes me rethink all that :)
It's stunning Erin!

Just stunning! I'm so glad the yarn kept the darker pink shades, too. Definitely reminiscent of juicy summer peaches! :)

I could EAT those sweet little peaches! :-) But you've done something much better with them. The finished hank is fabulous! :-)

That is a thing of beauty. I love the colors. You should be very proud of your dye and spin. Love it!

That yarn looks like Spring -- and is especially beautiful since Mother Nature isn't cooperating.

That is absolutely beautiful. I just brought a book home from work on handspinning to see if I wanted to try my hand at it, and then I saw your gorgeous post. It's an omen that you posted something so irresistible. I'm guessing a modest wheel is in my future.
