Field of Lavender was inspired by a beautiful photograph I saw of lavender growing in France. The lavender itself takes the forefront, and back behind are tall yellow-green grasses and a country road with a red Citroen driving through it. Still further back is a forest with green trees.
All of those colors made it into the yarn, which I dyed as a splashed and speckled colorway. That means the colors are the same on each skein, but the color placement and how they blend together will be different every time.
I used my Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

92% superwash merino / 8% lurex

Field of Lavender would look great with Cherries Jubilee, Lilac, The Winedark Sea, Eggplant, and Ochre to name a few.
I have included a photo of a hat I knit using this colorway on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it can work up.
