Color Contest

There was lots of discussion last night about the color of this nunofelt wrap.

Neither blue, green or teal is quite the color to describe it. Mary Harris, owner of the Fiber Gallery and my business host for the Phinneywood Artwalk suggested Duwamish Tide (the Duwamish River being an urban waterway polluted by years of industrial contamination and vital to the region’s economy).

The peanut gallery sitting around at the end of the evening suggested naming this color would be a great contest.

Leave a comment with your name suggestion here, or use the contact form at The prize will be a nunofelt scarf kit with instructions, silk, and merino roving to make a simple scarf in these colors. A winner will be selected at random in two weeks, on May 26th.

Edit May 29th: And the winner is CraftyB, selected by Random Number Generator. Many thanks to everyone who left a comment and color suggestion. I think I will add all of the color suggestions as tags in my Etsy listing.

    With two daughters and a house full of barbies, my daughters and I think “Mermaid’s Tail” is a good name for the colour, (and for the scarf).

    your work is very inspirational!

    Hmm, it looks closer to a bluer teal than anything else, but it is a difficult color indeed. Peacock-a-teal!

    What a beautiful scarf, by the way!

    That’s what I usually call Peacock Blue, although that is a fairly boring name. For a more interesting name maybe Oceanic or Lake.

    ooh it’s gorgeous…I’d say it’s Cerulean Breeze.
