Lilac, June’s Color of the Month on Plush Single LIMITED EDITION

Plush singles feature extra fine 19.5 micron superwash Merino wool. This yarn base is light weight, incredibly soft and has a beautiful silky sheen. Plush is the perfect yarn for a colorful shawl, light weight hat, or your favorite colorwork design.  

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.


Lilac season came and went so fast this year- but my goodness they were gorgeous while they were in bloom. My whole neighborhood smelled like lilac! I made lilacs the inspiration for June’s color of the month in hopes to keep the memory of their gorgeous blooms alive for just a bit longer this year. 

I made this limited edition colorway by mixing aqualon blue and rose pink as my base color  then I poured over a second layer of aqualon blue with a little less rose pink and finished with some red grape.  I finished the colorway with orchid and violet speckles. 

Lilac will pair beautifully with last months colorway, Blue Mussel, Blueberry, Robin’s Egg, Beauchamp, Harvest, Wild Nights, Shadow, Barred Owl, Oxidize, Pine Cone, Hemlock, or Fig. 

June’s Color of the Month is available on Plush Single, Spontaneous Sock Fingering and DK.

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.
