FAIRBANKS - having lived in Fairbanks for years (and my husband being born and raised in Fairbanks/North Pole area), this city holds a special place in our hearts. We still go back 1-2 times a year to visit family. One of my favorite things about this town is the amazing colors you get in the sky and on the snow as the sun reflects off the ice crystals - I went with this magical cool plum/purple tone for this shade - very heathered and wearable and frosty!

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
I knew I had to have this as soon as you described it. It is delicious. I purchased a sweaters quantity.
As soon as you described this yarn I had to have it. I live in Texas and it is a practical weight. So very so and beautiful. I bought enough to make a sweater.
This could become my new "Soulmate" yarn. It feels sensational in my hands...and .love the soft, understated elegance of the color. I've given it 5 stars based in this information. When I have something to wear, all knitted up and wear tested, I'll add to this review!
