  1. ooh that cloverleaf BFL was in my hands but i ended up grabbing another color because i’ve been a little too obsessed with oranges,etc. lately. i should have gotten it anyway.

  2. Just beautiful. Such restraint too. I can’t wait to see these spun up and as I told you at Rhinebeck, the last one can always double as one of those rainbow wigs, albeit a very fine one.
