It's a cold but sunny day. You put on your coat, your scarf, and your hat and head out to the forest.
Only a few leaves remain on the trees, but beneath your feet is a plethora of colors. You pull your hand-made scarf up over your mouth and nose and walk on, enjoying the crunch of red, orange, brown, and purple leaves beneath your feet.
After a refreshing hike, you head home to a hot cup of coffee and the comfort of your knitting needles--knitting a colorway inspired by the forest floor. ;-)
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a smooth, soft 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.
Forest Floor on Stained Glass Sock
400 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 plies
80% superwash merino / 20% nylon
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry.
Forest Floor would look great with Autumn Leaves, Ochre, and Monarch Butterfly.
