Yup. I just received approximately 2500 yards of hand dyed wool from one of my favorite people in the world. She hand dyes yarn for the lys i work at and its all freaking gorgeous. This particular color way came about when i fell in love some koigu, but "f" if im gonna actually knit with fingering weight, a few weeks later my lady comes back with this beauty.  Now as cool as the yarn itself is, the super huge ball of yarn is almost just as sweet.



So, what would you knit with it? Im definitly thinking hooded cardigan, bell sleeves, wood buttons.
