My daughter Rebecca named this colourway MOUNTAIN DEW. A beautiful subtle blending of lichen greens and soft grey-blues with deeper speckles of blue, touches of gold and flecks off magenta. It is a truly calming colourway and puts me in mind of lichen covered granite rocks when viewed from a distance on a mountain side. This colourway is quite neutral and would make a lovely sweater.
