Foliage & Fungi – A Fall Forest Inspired Yarn Color Palette Collection

When autumn returns to the forest you will find most foliage turning brown, oak leaves will turn copper,  and quaking aspens turn glistening gold. Every year you will find the same beautiful colors as the trees shed their leaves and the world of fungi begins to emerge. Year after year the cycle repeats and the forest lives on.

I was looking out my kitchen window at the old tree next door when I noticed some wood-like fungus growing out of it. But I found myself completely ignoring all the beautiful familiar fall leaves and studying the intricacies of some strange new fungus attached to a decaying tree trunk. I was inspired.

Autumn is the perfect time for the fungi, as the cold moist conditions are not only the easiest time to spot them, but their favorite time to grow. How many different types of fungi can you find on your next foliage and fungi forest walk? Everyone should definitely go on a Foliage & Fungi Forest Walk! Yup!

I was very inspired this autumn to create my newest yarn color palette collection, Foliage & Fungi. I definitely wanted to work with mushrooms in some way as I find them really interesting to look at and absolutely delicious to eat. I couldn’t stray far from fall though and had to pay homage to the foliage we find feeding the forest floor year after year.

The 2022 Foliage & Fungi Yarn Color Palette collection will guide you in choosing what yarn color palettes work best for your upcoming fall themed crochet or knit projects. This collection consists of 3 foliage themed yarn color palettes, and 3 fungi inspired palettes. All 6 palettes offer 2 yarn options true to color in 2 separate yarn weights.
