"Vibrato" is the name I finally decided upon for this colorway, which includes both magenta and cerulean blue, shading from dark to light in both colors.
Vibrato, as a musical term, means a rapid fluctuation of pitch, slightly above or below the main pitch. This gives a singing effect.
The colors in this hand dyed thread seem to vibrate back and forth, so it seemed that "Vibrato" would be a good name. I did only a small batch as a first experiment, to work out the dye amounts, etc., to get these particular shades. I like it! So, if other folks do too, more will come.
I also did a few skeins as solids in magenta and cerulean, attempting to get the colors as rich and "jewel tone" as possible.
These will be 2 of the thread colors that I am planning to put into kits for the beaded tatting class that I am planning. I think the other 2 will be "Peace" and "Tigereye". Then there will be 2 jewel tone solids, 1 variegated pastel, and 1 variegated earth tones for the students to choose from.
