I had to laugh because that was my guess before I opened the thread.
The colors of this yarn are really beautiful. Your finished sweater looks like it is being snowed on, with all the white dots. Very interesting story on what you did to "make" your own yarn out of this yarn. A lot of work, but it turned out very nicely. I like the burgundy on the cable panel fronts very much. That really brings out the little bit of burgundy in the tan section. Really, really nice.
