I know that Copper River is not in Kodiak, but it is in Alaska and its the first thing that came to mind as I was spinning this yarn. It's loaded with copper flash. The photos do not capture the metalic in this yarn at all. It simply glows. I plied in fused angelina fibers in addition to the copper flash that was carded into the wool. If you've seen fused glass, you'll know the metalic sheen this yarn gives off.
