Fresh and very bright green leaves are unfolding everywhere right now. It’s a delight to watch how the treetops getting greener and greener every day. Don’t you just love springtime?
My latest monochromatic colorway showcases the color of the newly sprung leaves of the beech in our Scandinavian woods. A truly inviting color, delicate, fresh, good enough to eat. In fact, you can eat the beech leaves while they are young. They taste really good!
Here’s the Beech Leaves colorway for you, shown on Bluefaced Leicester wool:
I have dyed this colorway on BFL, Shetland wool, Cheviot wool, a merino/bamboo luxuryblend and a set of silk Hankies. You can see it all in my Etsy-shop! (Yes, that’s new too!)
More new colorways are coming very soon. A dark brown is drying out back right now, and I’m thinking hard of a good name for it. I kind of reminds me of some kind of animal fur, but which animal is it now?? I have to think, look through some wild life-books, maybe..
Earlier today I painted some wool in a greyish purple hue. It’s still in the oven, can’t wait to see how this one turns out!
