A Pretty Shawl From Blue Tort Wool

A while ago, Carol G. bought some blue tort wool harvested from Chu's Oceana. The rabbit looks bluish beige but the wool looks almost off white. Carol kept on saying that she would dye the wool because it's so light in color. Eventually she decided to spin it up and to make a shawl in the natural color.

The finished shawl is beautiful; good spinning, good knitting and even good color, definitely not off white.

In general the finished garment is more intense in color than the wool in the bag.
