"Old World" is such an interesting color, and one that I like very much. It is one of a series of formulas that I use that have a yellow base, with equal parts of blue and red in the remainder of the formula. The other colors that fall into this category are "Cow Corn", "Corn Stubble", and "Antique British" green and "Levi" grey. All are wonderful primitive shades. I'm not sure what it is about using equal parts of blue and red, but something magical happens! This brown tips toward green and is really kind of a khaki brown. Level 5 is particularly pretty.
A WORD ABOUT BROWNS
The best browns are produced using 50-70% yellow and varying combinations of blue and red to round out the formula. So you will see a good range of brown shades, plus some that have less yellow, and so have more 'purple' or 'green' or 'orange' in them, as the two other primaries begin to overpower the yellow. There may be some browns in my collection that you would not consider "brown" per se, but placed next to the nearest neighbor, you would see that they are clearly very brown. Also, the lighter values will sometimes not seem very brown, but they still belong within their color grouping and will shade nicely with the darker values when used as a swatch.
NOTE: In general, use the individual color image as your guide. I have devoted many, many hours to adjusting the images to match the actual wool color, but the usual disclaimers (about colors appearing different on different monitors) apply.
HOW TO ORDER
The standard minimum size available at Ram in the Thicket is a 3" X 18" increment, and each of those represents one "item". So from each listing, order the total number of increments of that color you would like. If you order more than one 'item' of any color, I will send it out as one large piece.
