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, light green, brown, dark blue, and dark purple along with a multitude of black and green-blue speckles.
I dyed this yarn using my Splashed and Speckled method, which means each skein contains the same colors but in different places, making each one unique. I used my Sparkly Merino Sock base this time, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.
If you plan to use more than one skein in a project, I recommend switching skeins every few rows to create a more consistent look.

Enchanted Forest would look wonderful with Annunciation Blue or Eggplant.
I included two photos that show a hat I knit up in this colorway using Aran Go Baa. 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, the yarn base, and even the individual skein.
