Brown in its many variations. Donn is the color of brown hair, cattle, brown paper, and seasoned timber. With a wide range of undertones, shimmering through chocolate-brown to show hints of black, yellow, red, and even a slight hint of mossy green, this colorway is a nuanced take on what’s often considered a simple color.
This colorway is part of our Dathanna series, inspired by the Irish language and its words for colors. Kettle-dyed with carefully-chosen undertones, we’ve made poetic interpretations of the subtle nuances of dathanna, or colors, as they’re understood and used as Gaeilge. These colorways are all more-or-less subtly variegated, so if you’re trying to avoid color pooling, we recommend alternating two skeins in your project. We do our best to hand-match skeins in each order, but due to our small dye batches and the natural movement of dye in a kettle, we can’t guarantee exact color alignment matches from skein to skein. Please wash your yarn or finished objects in cold water with a designated wool wash to avoid bleeding.
