Enchanted Forest is a deep rich journey into every forest in every work of literature--a place of dangerous creatures and mischievous fairies and the risk of getting lost in something larger than yourself. The colors are dark green, blue, brown, and dark purple along with a multitude of speckles.
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.

Enchanted Forest would look great with Monet's Water Lilies, Annunciation Blue, and Eggplant to name a few.
I included a couple photos of a hat I knit on this colorway on Wonderful Worsted so you can get an idea of how it can work up.
