Name That Yarn! Contest

I need some help naming a new yarn that will be coming around the end of June. This yarn is exclusive to Wool2Dye4 and comes from England and the Blue Faced Leicester folks from whom we import the three BFL yarns and roving.

Description: Blue Faced Leicester, 3-ply yarn in a superwash sock weight.

Here are the rules:
1. Suggest a name for this new yarn by June 30.
2. Submit your name on this blog. This way others can see your ideas.
3. If chosen, you will receive the very first shipment of this new sock weight yarn in a one-pound cone. Value: $45

I'll give you the names I am already thinking of ...
Wool2Dye4 BFL SuperSock
Wool2Dye4 Wee Woolie
BF Super Wee Woolie

OK, OK. They're not so great! That's why I need some help!

How about... Supersockibluefacedleicestericallidocious?

Criminy, I can barely spell that! :-)

OK, OK, seriously now, I can only go by my own tastes, which for product names tends towards the simple and easy-to-remember. I'm dreadfully absentminded, so I ascribe to the K.I.S.S. method for lots of things.

So, with that (barely, heh) in mind, how about WoolieFoot? Or SuperWoolie? Or Woolie SuperSock?

That's all I've got for now... My favorite Dylan song is "Tangled Up in Blue," but that doesn't translate well to naming a yarn -- "tangled" isn't a quality most would like to see in their sock yarn!

Socks sung Blue (remember that Neil Diamond song, "song sung blue..."?)

Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) is my very favorite fiber to spin. Sometimes among spinners it's referred to as 'biffle'...which I think makes perfect sense for a name!

W2D4 Biffle Supersock
W2D4 Biffle Sport
W2D4 Biffle Aran

And of course, to my absolute delight, Biffle roving!

Bluefoot. First thing that came to mind, oddly enough.

W2D4 Blue Ewe 2000

In reference to both the Blue Face Leicester as well as the amount of yardage contained in the cone.

I read somewhere that the Cockney rhyming slang for socks is "diamond rocks." So, I was thinking:

W2D4 Diamond Flocks Superwash Socks?
