This is one of the most beautiful neutrals I've ever dyed. The photos simply can't do them justice, and I'm hoping that between those words and these, you'll gain an inkling of just how truly lovely they are: fawn, ivory, champagne, mauve, and smoky iced grape.
Imagine. You're out in the forest early, before breakfast, with a wicker basket and only a few sips of coffee to warm your mouth. A new patch of mushrooms has recently appeared, and you have a feeling last nights gentle rain has brought up a new crop. Indeed it has! Dozens of perfect fungi dot the ground, and they're so perfectly beautiful you almost hate to pick them. Creamy white stems, ivory edges on caps that flow inward to fawn centers. And the cocoa aubergine gills that leave stains on your hands.
These are almost as perfect as hand-dyed luxury yarn gets. Only three skeins available.
