I dyed it on Super Sport, which is a wonderfully squishy 80/20 superwash merino/nylon yarn perfect for hats, shawls, sweaters, and heavier weight socks for winter. It is a nice round 3-ply with great stitch definition.
Beowulf on Super Sport

Beowulf would look great with Eggplant and The Winedark Sea or with Forest Green or Evergreen.
I included a photo of a hat I knit to give you an idea of how Beowulf can work up.

Happy fiber artistry!
Beowulf was inspired by the epic poem, which is the oldest surviving poem in English. It's a dark, dramatic colorway that matches the heroic tale and the fight between good and evil. The colors include silver with hints of, purple, green, dark red, and blue.
