I called this “Seven Seas” because it seemed like the roving had all the shades of blue and cream you might expect to see in the water. I absolutely loved the colour in the roving. I’m honestly not that thrilled with the result in the 3-ply: it seemed like there was cream everywhere, and it dulled down the colours of the blues.
