Lichen comes in many tones and hues, depending on where in the world you live. Growing up in the high desert of southern Idaho, our lichen was a bright, golden green color. It grows on the basalt rocks that are prevalent leftovers from ancient volcanic activity. This colorway is reminiscent of mother nature's splash of color that brightens up the reddish brown rocks and the dry, blowing grasses in this beautiful (and sometimes under-appreciated) climate.
Hazel Knits "layered solids" are shaded from lighter to darker with multiple colors to give your lacy or patterned knitting depth and interest while still highlighting the stitch definition.
With nine tightly twisted plies, Piquant Lite has incredible stitch definition and durability. The 10% added nylon makes this an excellent choice for socks. A bit thinner than the Artisan Sock yarn will broaden the appeal of this yarn for many.
