This was originally a mostly white yarn from a batt by artclub that I dyed with Manic Panic Bad Boy Blue, a hair dye that doesn't work on my hair very well, so I had to do something else with it.

FiestaWare is a soft Angora bunny fur dyed with acid dyes. My inspiration was the Fiestaware pottery collection at my friend Mary Lou's house as it is just a beautiful wall of color.
