I've been asked to make one of my rose brooches in cream. Cream is one of those difficult colours that can be interpreted in so many ways. And it's subtle, so not exactly something I'd like to try in my dye pot. One option of course is to just go for a natural wool colour, but my request is for something a little bit more than that. I've blended an unbleached wool with a faint dusky pink for my first attempt.

I'll spin that up today and see how it goes. I also have a hand-dyed golden yellow wool top. I'll blend that up in a similar way. I figure with the number of black wool coats I see around the place every day, a few light coloured roses will find a good home.
