Gently Red is a soft red I have used several times myself. I use for soft accents and for outining. It would be a lovely flower, dress, corner blocks, border or lettering. A wonderful bathing suit or house or shutters. This is a good piece to have in your stash even when you don't know what you are going to use it for.

here is a lovely Blue Red that would be a great alternative for Christmas Themed rugs or a Victorian Theme. I see it as beautiful and rich ribbons, dresses, borders, hats or deep rose and for the right design could work as a background such as an Oriental or Native American.

Wine and Roses is a pretty blue- red. From The Wool Club Issue 8 Oct. 2017. Pretty for hearts, flowers,dresses,nice for a soft strawberry and in it's Dark Value a nice rich cranberry color that would be wonderful for Christmas Themed rugs if you prefer to use cranberry instead of red. If you are looking for a Baby Girl Pink, then choose Pastel Wine & Roses.

Spruced Up is a medium value of Blue Green. Another lovely green for the landscape and plant foliage. Use Wine & Roses for your flowers and you'll have a lovely flower! Would be a nice house color, grass highlights and more. Spruced Up & Beyond is a Spot Dye/Abrash all in one. A gorgeous piece for backgrounds, borders, foliage and landscapes. Abrash

This is my most popular blue wool in this family. It's lovely for soft skies, delicate flowers (Forget Me Not's), blue dresses or nice in a crewel design. Forget Me Not Pale and Forget Me Not Light also available. Mix all three together for a lovely soft sky with nice movement.
