Woolspire yarn haul part 1

The yarn I ordered from arrived yesterday, and I absolutely love everything! So. Much. Gorgeous. Yarn!!! I have decided to split the yarn haul into two posts, because I've already started working with some of the yarn. I have so many ideas for the yarn, and I'll share some of them below. Let's get started!

This yarn is the "Stella" metallic yarn by Järbo. It's so freaking soft! I'm thinking this would make some awesome arm warmers, possibly a cowl. The yarn is fairly thin though, so a cowl might take forever to make.

 This is the Mayflower "Divine" yarn in the colour "rainbow". It's actually a sock yarn, but the product description says that it can be used for other things as well. I'd love to make some colourful arm warmers with this yarn. I might buy more of this yarn at some point, and make myself a pair of awesome rainbow socks.

This is the Mayflower "Sunset" yarn in neon green. I got two balls of this one, because it was on sale and also because it's such an awesome colour. My camera made the colour more muted, and though I tried to make it more vibrant again in photoshop, it still isn't as bright as it is in person. Seriously, it's so bright that it almost hurts my eyes when I look at it! =P I want to make arm warmers with this one.

Can you tell that I'm really crazy about the Mayflower yarns? =P This is the Mayflower "Italy" in blue and silver. I'm thinking this one will look nice as a cowl, which should be fairly quick to make since the yarn is so thick. I got two of these.

This is Du Store Alpakka "Sterk" in the colour "lindegrønn", which obviously is a shade of green. =P
I intended this one to be part of a project I will reveal in the next yarn haul post, but I decided that it didn't really fit with the rest of the colours. I don't have any plans for this one right now, but I'm sure I'll find some use for it eventually.
