Citrine: Cast bronze. Citrine is a cool, swampy ochre muddled with olive, lime, and rust, the lightest member of a yellow-green gradient with Sulphur and Serpentine. In comparison to the Loft and Shelter palette, think of it as Fauna’s brighter cousin.
Flint: Douglas fir bark. Flint is a strong middle brown grizzled with white and camel and tinted with black, shot with the occasional streak of lichen yellow.
Garnet: Spice market. This deep chili red is lightly shaded with black and purple, then toasted to festive perfection with autumnal gold, rust, and brown.
Geode: Foggy mornings on the coast. Geode is a twilight grey striated with royal blue and soft lilac. The merest hint of camel gives it a faint glow.
Granite: Gulls on the winter sea. A steady, enduring, medium grey, Granite is very similar to Sweatshirt in the Loft and Shelter palette.
Gypsum: The spoonful of cream at the top of the milk bottle. Gypsum is a warm white with a friendly glaze of camel.
Hematite: Blackberry pie. Hematite reads as the darkest possible magenta; it’s composed of black lit with dashes of scarlet and just a hint of lavender and navy.
Lapis: Summer skies. Lapis is a blend of three blues tempered with black, brighter than Almanac in the Loft and Shelter lines, but still close kin.
Lazulite: Deep sea diving. Lazulite is blackened navy with a pinch of lavender and teal.
Moonstone: Snow shadows. Grey white with a touch of royal blue, Moonstone is a cool and tranquil pale hue.
Obsidian: Lava glass. Obsidian is black marbled with glints of grey and white, which enliven the fabric and help to reveal stitch work.
Sandstone: Whole-wheat flour. Sandstone is a warm white seasoned with brown and a dash of camel for mellow glow. Compared to the Loft and Shelter palette, it’s darker than Fossil but paler than Woodsmoke.
Serpentine: A forest watering hole. Serpentine is murkiest dark olive with subtle hints of navy, teal, yellow, and rust.
Slate: Welsh rooftops. Slate is a moody, muddy blue grey with streaks of camel and rust.
Sulphur: Parrot feathers. A lively, mid-value olive hue, Sulphur is laced with yellow, lime, brown, rust, and the occasional fleck of navy.
Fossil: Stags’ velvety antlers. Fossil is white warmed with a whisper of brown.
