This is an excellent light brown color which is similar in shade to Hatchbox Wood. There is no wood in this PLA. It does not appear to be sold on the Mad Maker Filament site.

It's really sad that Protoparadigm disappeared in the middle of the night. They had a very good earth tone and gem series of filaments. One of the owners and original creators of the filament is continuing the colors at MadMakerFilament.com. MadMaker is advertising a quality 3D850 HTPLA in their filaments. I must caution you that I do not have any direct buying experience with this new company but the owner responded quickly and thoroughly to my email. Protoparadigm was also known as 5 dollar filament and they may be returning with yet another name.
