That is very lovely. I suppose that is what they call "self-striping" yarn? I also love the butterfly. The way the yarn is variegated, it almost makes it look like "self-butterflying" yarn!

Is intarsia where you use bobbins of different colors, and then when you come to the next color, you twist the yarns together, then pick up your next color? That is what I did for my baby blanket. I...
