Not named after the band Queen (though they're cool too) but just in a general spirit of queenliness.
It could be yours.
(I pride myself on having perfect color reproduction in my photos, but there's just something spooky about this deep-purple hand-dyed merino that just defies accurate duplication on camera, for some reason. The actual color is a darker, deeper, velvety royal purple.)

Went to The Woolery at their new Frankfort location today! Even though they aren't actually open for business yet, they let me come in and buy some goodies, like Soy Silk, Camel Down, Llama.... great stuff.
I immediately came home and whipped up this batt, which is 2.1 ounces of Merino, Soy Silk, Camel Down, Llama, Yak, Icicle, Angelina, Silk, Silk Noils, and Lincoln.

Remember those "jelly nougat" candies, the round chewy things with bits of colorful gel stuff pockmarked all over it? They weren't very good candies, but they sure were purty, and this batt reminded me of them.
Psst... hey mister, I'll sell it to you...

I purchased this somewhere online, I forget where now. It's shredded U.S. currency, made from genuine uncut sheets of dollar bills discarded by the U.S. Treasury Department. They make a nice addition to any out-there art yarn. Look for a batt on my Etsy shop soon, to be made entirely of unconventional materials including this.
