Dyer's Notes regarding this club pairing (included on original club fiber labels):

“Gone With the Wind” is a wonderful story which was made into a movie back in the 1940's. In the story, the main characters Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler have a torrid romance set against the backdrop of the US Civil War, enduring much loss, heartache and sorrow along with their strong, volatile love for each other.

Scarlett is a character with a strong will, an independent spirit and deep emotions. Strong colors were needed so I chose the deep green as it was the color of one of her more noteworthy beautiful dresses, and also the color of her and eyes. The blue signifies her relationship with Rhett, as it was his favorite color. I added red and orange to invoke the backdrop of flames, as Scarlett's family home/plantation, Tara, was burned down by the Union soldiers. Also, after she lost everything she was in such bad straits she tried to eat rotten carrots, poor gal. AS for the bit of warm purple- it looks good :)

Rhett was quite the player, refusing to settle for the usual role of a country gentleman. He smuggled guns for the Confederate Army, and was jailed by the Union army for this crime. Rhett loved Scarlett very much, but the two of them just never could make their relationship work. They had a daughter who died (not related to the war), whom they both loved very much. I wanted the colors of Rhett to signify his masculinity and independence, and also to evoke the troubles he and Scarlett had in their relationship. I chose the black as he wore black a lot, adding in gray since he was in the Confederate army and that was the color of their uniforms. I added the blues as not only was blue his favorite color, but he called his beloved daughter, Bonnie Blue, after her blue eyes.
