Haar: A wet mist or fog; esp. applied on the east coast of England and Scotland, from Lincolnshire northwards, to a cold sea-fog. (OED)
We may not be on the coast but we are definitely north of Lincolnshire, and on this cold and grey morning we do have a fog, not dense but very chilling.
Coincidentally I was going to blog about haar this morning, even before I walked up the lane and saw the fog.
What may be a dull grey fog to you or me, is just another colour inspiration to Natalie.
I used the yarn to knit a Tennessee Twister Cowl - all the details are on Ravelry.
Over the coming year Natalie will be using her dyeing skills to give us all sorts of wonderful colours, some of which I am sure will become cowls and shawls by next Christmas. Read more about that here.
