New Yarn: "Cake"

So, this yarn does not have a name yet, but it is inspired by Sofia Coppolla's movie "Marie Antoinette". If you haven't seen the movie, it's wonderful. A bit of a slow start but a very fun movie. If you like the story of Marie Antoinette throw all your preconceived notions out the door, this movie is more about her life turning into the queen.

But enough about the movie, this yarn was spun from fabric that I hand dyed myself last year in my surface design class. All of the fabric was ripped into 1" strips, spun and then plied with cotton yarn. The second picture is more true to color.

*Edit: I've decided on a name for this yarn: "Cake". The name is inspired by the famous saying "Let them eat cake", also, because this yarn is made from scrap fabric, and Marie Antoinette gave her "scraps" to the people of France. More or less. The colors are also very colorful like most cakes.
