The blue is called Karisoke, and is named after Dian’s research station in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park. The research station itself is named after two nearby mountains, Karisimbi and Visoke.
Karisoke is a color of the fourth Wollmeise Yarn Club delivery, which was dedicated to the scientist Dian Fossey. The matching pattern "Walk your Way" by Melanie Berg (Mairlynd) can be found here

Because of mixing of cashmere, merino and polyamide some colour-ways have turned out rather more "mixed" than usual.

This still falls within our quality standards.
