This is a beautiful piece! It's a wonderful medium background. I color planned a rug for a student who was using predominately red & green. This was beautiful with reds and greens eliminating the"Christmasy" look. In the orange colors it is gorgeous with Orange Delight, Tangerine Tango, Fall Leaves, Pumpkin Sorbet, Vermillion Fantasy, Blooming Pumpkin, Geraniums and Wild Salmon. Gorgeous with Red Violet Joy and Magenta Marble Parfait (issue 1 Wool Club Sample). Would be wonderful with most greens in the light to medium value.
