Black Cherry looks just like it's had cherry fruit squashed into it. I knew I was going to paint this yarn several months ago when we were picking our cherry tree. One of us picks while the other pits, and by the time we're done the juice dyes everything (which is why we do the pitting outside). The variations are very beautiful, and stunningly accurate in color to our small wooden table stained with cherry juice.
