Printed Cotton

You know we love a good marl or a speckle or a variegated yarn, so we were pretty intrigued by the idea of a printed yarn. What does that even mean?
According to the folks at Blue Sky Fibers, the Printed Organic Cotton yarn is created using an "ink press and the artisan hand". Not sure what that means, but it sure sounds interesting, and the results are stunning!
I'm thinking this would make a perfect cotton sweatshirt for summer, especially in that sunny yellow. Maybe a cozy Flax or a Shellseeker. A soft baby blanket would be lovely, too, perhaps in a nice range of shades. The Purl Soho Chevron Baby Blanket is forever my favorite, and it would be so cool with 5 or 6 of these. I can't wait to see more projects using this yarn!
