The colour itself is not too bad. Tans, taupes and mid shades of brown make for some good neutrals. It’s the solid mid to dark brown where it loses it for me. It has no life, it seems to suck light into and becomes flat and lifeless.
Or so I thought. I was proved wrong when it comes to wool. Wool excels in brown. The textures shine and shimmer and bring life to brown. Traditional tweeds with their flecks of golden yellow, cream and sometimes blue nestled in against the brown make my heart sing.
Certainly a case where the choice of fabric and texture, makes the colour come to life.
