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 yarn on Wonderful Worsted, which is a squishy and round 4-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It's great for sweaters, shawls, hats, and more.
Forest Floor on Wonderful Worsted
218 yards / 3.5 ounces / 4 plies
100% superwash merino wool
Care: Machine or hand wash cold and air dry
Forest Floor would look great with The Winedark Sea.
I have included a swatch I knit in this colorway on Wonderful Worsted. 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 you use and the yarn base as well.
