A brownish-grey colour. Dun coloured clothes are hardwearing and outdoor friendly, in a colour that doesn’t show the dirt.
As children we heard it as ‘dung coloured’, which is probably about right. A good colour to have for chair covers and throws in family and other hardwearing outdoor, play or games rooms. Looks quite good in corduroy and cavalry twill for chair covers and works really well with denim and the ‘ancient’ colourings of highland plaids.
