February’s color of the month was inspired by those beautiful pink bits found in January’s color of the month Gratitude. I wanted to create a pink colorway that had the same earthy undertones with lots of layers of color. When thinking about pinks, I am usually more inspired by deeper shades that lean towards purples, much like one of my favorite flowers, the dahlia. After doing a bit of research I decided that various shades of dahlias were the perfect inspiration for this months colorway.
This colorway is first dyed with champagne and then I layer in various mixtures of ecru, rose pink, orchid, and violet. I finish this colorway with Orange and yellow speckles.
February’s color of the month will pair beautifully with Always a Bridesmaid, Fig, Pressed Petal, Beauchamp, Fireworks, Gratitude, Dark Star, Christmas by the Sea, or Brick

This fiber was handdyed by ontheround using professional quality acid dyes. I dye my yarn in small batches and no skein will be 100% the same- that's what makes working with hand dyed yarn so fun!
I do my very best to accurately photograph my yarns but please note that not all monitors are the same. My yarn is made in my smoke-free, pet free studio in Rockland Maine.
