Which Opal yan?

I just cast on using an Opal yarn for this sock but I have a question, I'd really like to know what type or series of Opal my yarn is. Hoping someone maybe able to help me out a little heres the info I have

It's Opal printed inside and out is all in German of course. It's most like a basic sock pattern on the inside of the label.

Farbe I'm assuming is the color # 135 and partie is that dye ot or something? 2312

It's mostly white with specks of a lt blue here and there then a tiny lt pink every inch or so maybe a complete row if that.. lt or pale colors but mostly white.. I've never seen an Opal yarn like this and would really very much like to know which it is.

It should say on the band. The Opal bands are looking almost exactly the same but for the kind of yarn it is which is printed in small letters at the end of the band.

Hope this helps!

Very cool, must be an older, discontinued color (or is it very new?). I couldn't find anything similar at the distributor's site (PTYarns). But like Eva said, look at the band, there will be a word/name printed in block letters right above the color/farbe and partie/lot numbers. : )

this is what Pt yarns had to say:

"This was one of the colors sent in the very beginning when Opal first started in U.S.
At that time there were no names to them. Just got whatever they sent."


Thanks for all your help!
