October's color of the month is here!
This heavily speckled colorway is the essence of everything that I love about fall- warm undertones with beautiful pops of color EVERYWHERE! This combination was inspired by one of my favorite spots in Midcoast Maine- Erickson Field. Erikson Field is an amazing community trail and I like to go there 2 or 3 times a week to stretch my legs, clear my head, and get inspiration! At the beginning of this trail you pass through one of the most majestic meadows I’ve ever seen and this month colorway, Meadow is an ode to that field. I’ve included a photo from the meadow just to give you all the feels!
To create the colorway I started with champagne and then poured over some ecru, which is a soft brown/gold. Then I heavily speckled both sides of the yarn with bronze and green, orange, orchid, deep brown and aqua blue.
I am very excited with this months colorway- it's warm and full of fun and it is sure to get you in the mood for Fall.
I also dyed a complimentary colorway on mohair silk that will pair perfectly with this color OR you could pair it Pine Cone, Diadem, Sugar Maple, Golden Ticket. If you are looking to pair this colorway with another base I would recommend Plush 4 ply or Single for fingering weight or Everyday DK for DK weight.

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 Merino 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.
