August's color of the month is here! This month I wanted to turn to my favorite apple the Pink Lady, which is one of the first types of apple you can get here in Maine. To create the colorway I started with an all over color Ivory which gives it a warm undertone and then I poured a heavy dose of Coral on top. To finished I speckle dyed on both sides some bronze green, orchid, and aqua blue!
Colorway: Pink Lady
Hand dyed Superwash Merino Wool/ Nylon (75/25)
3.5 oz/ 437 Yards
4 ply / Fingering 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...
I've brought back my Spontaneous Sock Yarn! This was the first yarn base I offered all the way back in 2009 and it has been such a treat to work with again. Spontaneous Sock Yarn is a 4 ply fingering weight 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.
