Opalescent is all spun.
I am amazed how six distinct pastel colors can just disappear into each other . . .
It is magic how when blended, spun and plied, the colors homogenize into a silvery light grey.
But in this photo I enhanced color saturation with digital effects . . .
so you can see the subtle splashes of lavender, orange, yellow, mint green, pale blue, and pink, just as the original dyed fiber was before blending together . . .
It nearly defies logic how mixing opposites on the color wheel simply neutralize each other. I honestly can say, of all my experiments in Tweed Chronicles, this one surprises me the most!

Oh yes, and the affect is very much you! xx
The colors are so delicate. I love this.
Maureen (it occurs to me to maybe stop calling you “Morrie”? 😉
it really blew me away how color could just turn to silver. I am on fire with mystery and determination to discover, and am dedicated to writing down the recipes for the taking ~~ my contribution to the blending & spinning crafters.
Love the techy stuff. You’re term of endearment is your own signature. I have no issue with it really. 😍
I know… reallly! 🙂 xx
