I agree with you, maybe a bit high for one skein, but if you get both skeins (and why wouldn't you...that is some GORGEOUS yarn ) then it's not bad at all for hand dyed yarn.

How gorgeous would that tide pool yarn be as a mermaid sleep sack??

Now I need to get pregnant, finish learning to knit, and find a bunch of hundred dollar bills in the backyard.

I'm tempted to get it for him.... but too many times I've knit up yarn for him that is on the cusp of being girly that I have been making my self use more boyish colorways for him lately.

I don't even use wool or know the first (or second, or third...) thing about knitting, but that's so pretty that I want it, too!
