Flamingoes on Lake Nakuru here on the Lushan... a pretty soft pinky orange. Warm and comfortable just like a summer day, with hints of Apricot and Strawberry.

This skein has some unplanned spots of pink and red, I think it will knit up fine but as they were not intended I'm offering them at a slight discount.

Tonal variations throughout the skein.

This yarn is just gorgeous, and I'm very excited to be bringing it to my line in fingering (4 ply) and heavy lace (3 ply) weights. I'm presenting it at a special introductory price :-) Cath Ward has used it for her latest shawl and we're having a KAL! Hurry along to the Budding Designers Down Under group on Ravelry to participate (after getting your yarn first of course)!
