Nah. There is no ballband on this yarn. It came from Twisted Sisters, who do a lot of hand-dyeing of wool yarn at their place in California. My thought is that maybe they dyed this yarn for a project, then decided the color wasn't exactly what they wanted.

It's FIVE POUNDS of fingering weight wool. I wish I had a big enough swift to hold it all. I guess I'll have to wrap it around some dining room chairs and walk around the two of them with my ball winder. I will probably get dizzy doing that.

Oh....by the way. The "movie poster" was an image that I found online. Has nothing to do with the yarn.
