Fall Leaves is the colour of Autumn... it's a fire cracker of a bonfire colourway too. The colour is a kettle dyed variegation, meaning that no two bumps are the same even in the same dye pot. This gives you some interesting themes to work on when spinning and felting your work.
I have spun and knit two samples for inspiration;
- Single ply lace weight on 3mm needles (using South Down, which takes a muted saturation). Spinning my fibre direct from the top allows the colours to play out as they appear in the braid and lightly blend via drafting.
- Two ply Aran weight on 5mm needles (using Merino, which is the same fibre as the hat sample I have included a picture of). Tearing the braid into two equally portions and spinning directly from the top allows the colours to marl much more in knitting.
