May’s Color of the Month yarn was inspired by the soft and delicate Daffodil’s popping up along Maine’s landscape.
I start out dyeing Daffodil with a soft layer of lemon yellow- creating a bright and cheerful yellow without being too bold and then I speckle dye it with chartreuse, aqua and orange to create some subtle pops of color.
I would recommend pairing this colorway with Lemongrass, Oxidize, Lincoln Street, Patina, Diadem, Robin’s Egg, Beauchamp, Eclipse, Barred Owl, Hologram, or Bayberry.
This yarn is excellent for baby knits and garments worn next to the skin. This base is also recommended to people who have sensitive skin.
While this is a fingering weight yarn, this yarn is not ideal for socks.

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.
