Color Story: Raw Amethyst
Color Group: Elegant
It’s hard to ignore the “it” color for this fall season. With it currently saturating fashion and home design it seemed fitting for this weeks color inspiration. Amethyst, violet, crocus, purple, etc… has a long regal history. The 3 fabulous yarn selections below call to mind the colors and characteristics of this rugged crystal. For added contrast try pairing with either gold or silver; the perfect compliment to any royal creation.
1) Hunker Down by Scout’s Swag; this yarns ombre effect is reminiscent of the gradients found in the individual amethyst crystals.
2) Belladonna by Atomic Blue; this yarn features a very detailed texture and similar color palette that invokes the feeling of the raw amethyst.
3) Black Raspberry by Bristol County Dyeworks; this yarns color reflects the “muddy” soft tones seen in the spaces where the white(clear) and purple meet or overlap.
