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 Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of extra-soft superwash merino and nylon.

One of the photos shows a big set of 7 autumn colorways. From left to right they are Afremov's Farewell to Anger, Monarch Butterfly, Forest Floor, Autumn Leaves (this one), The Winedark Sea, Sleepy Hollow, and Aubergine.
I included a couple 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.
