I absolutely love all of them. I really like the blue with bits of brown. I am obsessed with the blue brown or blue orange combo.

It looks absolutely yummy! Both the fiber and the finished yarn Wink

How did you prepare the fiber? Did you try to keep the colours separate? (It looks like that on the blue yarn)
I'm always afraid that I'll get a brown mess when I'm preparing rainbow dyed fleece..

 thanks everyone  Smiley

  Vildhavre  didn't really prepare the fleece much at all was very tippy so gave that a brush and basically spun it as it came if I thought I  was getting a bit much of one colour moved on to another  

the blue is much brighter and there seems to be more of it than the other colours so it is showing as the dominate one

I think that the good thing about rainbow dyed fleece  even if it doesn't come out how you intended it usually comes out allright  the Orange one wasn't intended to look anything like that but still worked ok
