Nectarine, Golden Fleece. Dusty, and Knitty Gritty
Here are the colors recently added to my Etsy shop.
"Nectarine" you've seen before, and yes, inspired by the fruit.
The "Golden Fleece" is simply the colors used in my other batch called "Golden Glow", but without the brighter yellow.
The "Dusty" reminds me of the color of my sons' twill pants - sort of dark olive green, but not quite - with some brown added.
"Knitty Gritty" turned out just a little differently from my first batch of this colorway, (this is all hand dyed, after all!) but is very similar.
Several of these are not what I'd call "pretty", but I think they have a place in the color palette, too. More design choices! The "Dusty" might work for tree branches, bark, stones, etc., to set off brighter colors in floral designs.
