Lintilla looks a different colour in every photo I've ever taken of it ... and every one of those photos is accurate. This yarn's colour-to-the-eye shifts with every change of angle and light. You'll have to click on the piccies through to the close-up view to properly see how colourful it really is.

The three new skeins are all either hand-painted or hand-dyed. The bronze silk/wool/seacell, amazingly, has a slight haze of verdigris green overlaying the "metal" colours at certain angles ... now THAT's authentic!
