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 have included a photo of a swatch 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.
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order. Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
