February's color of the month is here and it's giving me all the spring love feels! I've been inspired by a little bayberry bush that I see on my morning walk, and even though I didn't realize it this colorway is a direct representation of that soft and subtle blue grey with a little brown contrast.
To make this colorway I start with a very soft layer of navy blue with just a hint of baby blue to create soft periwinkle blue. Then I finish the colorway off with some violet and dark brown speckles creating a tonal colorway with the perfect amount of tweedy pops.
If you are looking to pair this limited edition colorway with something from my full collection then I would recommend Intergalactic, Wild Nights (also a wrinkle in time reference for my book lovers), Always A Bridesmaid, Beauchamp, Golden Road, Eclipse, Barred Owl, Plush,Diadem, or New Moon.

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.
