So tonight I went online a-cruising among the folks who work with hand-applied dyes and paints, drop spindles, and spinning wheels, and then give the rest of us mere mortals the privilege of buying their creations and found some glorious yarny treasures that had been spun in the province next door to the west (even more of a pleasure to support a Canuck artisan), and finally managed to make a choice ... a pair of giant-sized matched skeins of handpainted Polwarth wool/silk blend. And they'll be here very soon because the spinner has already printed the shipping label (just under three hours from my placing the order ... another reason to love this kind of shopping)
Can't show you what it looks like until the package gets here because the image/description has already been removed from the shop. But I can give you a hint if you want to try to guess at the colours ... the yarn is named "Red Light District"
Edited to add: Dawned on me that I could give you a peek at the skeins I didn't buy, just so you can get an idea of why it was so hard to choose
