Opalescent Spun

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!

      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.
