This is one gorgeous wool! A spot dye I developed for the pear of my Wool Applique pattern Paisley Pear. It's a vibrant Yellow Green with splashes of green, chartreuse, yellow orange, yellow and a muted gold. Just spectacular for flower foliage and landscape foliage.

This is one popular and versatile wool. It's just lovely and splashed riotously with colors that hook up beautifully. It was developed for Basket of Tulips and has been showing up in every neighborhood since. It's wonderful in leaves and other foliage. I rently had someone chose this for the background of a rug of Raggedy Anne and Andy. Beautiful Pear has splashed of the urnt red matching their hair. We mixed it with Medium I Love Olive and Light Bright Khaki for a lovely mix.
This is a nice soft piece, great for leaves with some interest.There is a splash o yellow orange and red violet and movement in the chartreuse family in tones.

Gemstones is one special wool with a lot of color going on. It is one of my favorites in the spot dyes. I have it listed here in the Yellow Green family and it is listed in the Aqua Green Family, too. It depends on what part of the wool you are looking at. You may not want to cut this one! There are splashes of Chartreuse and Orange-Red and there is movement in values as well. It would be a nice medium background and gorgeous for landscapes and gardens.

A gorgeous piece of multiple colors perfect for a background of floral's in particular. This was a happy mistake of mixing up the order of dyes at the end of a busy day. It reads Spring Green at first glance , then your eye wanders to discover splashes of aqua green, turquoise, purple, red violet, chartreuse and yellow green and navy. Hooked as is it could give the "impression" of floral and foliage from a distance.Thjere is extra interest with the hint of sparkle.

Razzled Dazzled is a spot dye with quite a variety of color going on - kinda like a party! It's a medium value with bursts of Purple, Red Violet, Cerulean Blue, Violet, a bit of Fuchsia and other colors in between in a range of values. Try it for Padula Flowers, a darker stormy sky, or dark stormy water. If using for flowers I would use a mix of Chartreuse, Yellow Green and Spring Green for the foliage. To outline your floer use ither Dolly's Orhid, Larkspur Delight ot Blackberry Smash.For the right piece could also work as an interesting border. Definately a piece to bring out your creativity.

This is an older piece I love. It has subtle color variation and and movement in values. The predominate color can be a Dark Fuchsia or Purple depending on the dye lot! with splashes of Lighter Fuchsia, Purple and Red Violet. A lovely darker background or border. It would be pretty lettering and outline with a lighter color in the green family or if you're looking for a little pizzazz try something in Chartreuse, Yellow Green or Spring Green. For a background with greater movement blend with Dark Dolly's Orchid, Blooming Purple and Blackberry Smash.
Ives Color: Fuchsia 16-16,16-26,15-35,14-31,15-18
Stormy Weather has a vast aray of color and values. It is bright in some areas and dull in others. Please order enough for your project as it will always come out differntly. It would be an interesting background with a very simple motiff such as a white flower or other color motiff within this field. It could work as an outline for a primitive/folk art style flower. A challenge to your imagination!
