June's Color of the Month is here and is inspired by a beloved classic children's story Miss Rumphius written and illustrated by Maine's own Barbara Cooney. The story of Miss Rumphius reminds us all that small acts of love and kindness can create big impact. I especially love this story because it reminds us to always keep pushing to try harder and do better everyday and that our actions matter.
I would recommend pairing this colorway with Lemongrass, Purple Rain, Lincoln Street, Conch, Wild Nights, Narwhal, Beauchamp, Blood Orange, Sugar Cookie, or Harvest.
This colorway is currently available on Spontaneous Sock in fingering and DK weight and Plush Single.

I've decided that instead of offering a surprise club offering every month, I would prefer to offer a Color Of The Month. Personally, I don't care for surprise colorways and would rather know what I am purchasing and I would like to extend the courtesy to you so I will be creating a colorway of the month (only available in that month, while supplies last) on a special base now INSTEAD of my Spontaneous Sock Club.
And as for the base...
Spontaneous Sock Yarn is a 4 ply yarn containing 75% Superwash Wool 25% Nylon Yarn. This is a medium grade wool that makes a durable and springy yarn perfect for items that will be worn and washed a lot! My favorite part about this yarn is that is takes dye so well and produces strong and vibrant colors.
This yarn is certified cruelty free.
Superwash yarn is machine washable in a gentle cycle with like colors, lay flat to dry. I've had a pair sneak into the dryer before and that won't ruin it, but whatever you make will last much longer if you air dry.
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.
