We spent two 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 this on So Silky Sock, which is made of 50% silk and 50% superwash merino. It's a lovely soft and strong base that's great for knitting, crocheting, and weaving.
Autumn Leaves on So Silky Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 4 Plies
50% Superwash Merino/50% Mulberry Silk
Care: Hand wash cold and air dry.
Autumn Leaves would look great with Ode to the West Wind and Jackson Pollock as shown in the last photo.
I included two photos of a hat I knit in this colorway. It should give you an idea of how the colorway will work up, but keep in mind that how it looks will vary a lot depending on the pattern you use and the yarn base as well.
