Color Inspiration Thursday: Lavender Fronds

Lavender Fronds on Spirit Trail Selene

When one thinks of lavender, it’s usually the beautiful blooms and scent. But I also love the muted bluish, grayish green of the plant itself. So I set about to create a colorway, Lavender Fronds, celebrating the soft, muted, herbal colors of lavender when its beautiful flowers aren’t stealing the show. It’s still a showstopper.

I love it in this pairing with Glacier, Atlantis, and Fog.

Wouldn’t these colors together make a super pretty striped shawl?! I might just have to steal some of my inventory to make one.

  1. Beautiful and before I read your spot-on explanation, I wondered where the purple was! Love the pairings, too!

    • Good point! I should probably include some pattern ideas in these Color Inspiration posts, eh? I’ll try to do that forthwith.

    • Eggplant would look fabulous with it. I don’t have any Selene dyed in Eggplant, but I could definitely do it (I have the base here). Or I can dye both colors on a different base. Email me at info@spirit-trail.net if you’re interested! Thanks!

    • Well. DUH. I DID dye Selene in Eggplant! This just shows I should never respond from memory. So, yes! Eggplant and Lavender Fronds would be lovely, and they’re both in stock 😀
