Here is a closer look at the new colors. I wanted to get some deep olive greens. The one on the bottom is darkest olive-brown-inky colorations, then comes a deep warm olive, an olive-brown, and a brown color mixture that reminds me of animal fur. The top color is a mustardy-green. The wools that I marbleized to get these colors are a greenish-black, 2 dark shades of olive-green, a brown, and a gold.
Here is the aqua colorway that I have reproduced successfully. These colors are so gentle and primitive, I gravitate toward them! They contain so many of my favorites: grays, sage, sand, and taupe.
I will also be adding 6 or so new colors. The two colors above I hesitated to add to the collection because I did not think anyone would buy them. But I gave it some more thought. Yes, they are ugly, but they are valuable neutrals. Do you think I can convince anyone out there of their worth? I think that they will hook up to be very gentle and faded for the quiet places like in a background. They are very primitive and I am naming them Grungy and Underfoot.
Miles to go before I finish, so why not take my time and relish my moments to handle all of this gorgeous wool as I cut, fold, and label it. I must be lucky indeed to have such a job. I bet if you lived next door I could offer you a glass of wine and you might even volunteer to help. Am I right?
