We spent a couple years living on a lake in Michigan right next to a beautiful forest. In autumn, the colors of the leaves were stunning--orange, golden yellow, red, and even purple. This yarn was inspired by that forest.
I dyed it on Diamond Silk Sock, which is an incredibly soft and strong luxury yarn base made of 100% mulberry silk. This is a great yarn base for those who are sensitive to wool. It is also tremendous for knitting and crocheting beautiful lacy shawls and for warp or weft as weaving. I would not recommend it by itself for sweaters or socks because silk does not have memory the way wool does.
