Whimsical Designs for Rug Hooking
Here is a darker red that would be nice for primitive style rugs or just where you want a dark red. It would be a nice dark background or border. Nice for lettering, too especially if you outline with a lighter or brighter color such as a gold or if against a light background use Soft Black, Purple Royalty, Black Grapes for the outline. It's a good choice where you want the brighness of red without it overpowering other colors. There is subtle movement with some darker values.
