The June Subscriber Color Inspiration colorways are now live at Spirit Trail Fiberworks! This month’s colorways are inspired by a photograph sent by Kate G.
Kate said this about her photograph: “I took this photo in April when we spent a week in Ogden, Utah, for work training for my husband. We were at the Ogden Botanical Garden one evening having a picnic and this bright orange flower hidden among the woody shrub caught my eye. It was easily missed and such a neat find!”
Kate wins a free skein of yarn in her own special colorway! Congratulations, Kate! (If you’d like to get in on the fun, just subscribe to my newsletter on my homepage, and send me a photo you love! I pick a new photo inspiration every month for these limited edition colorways.)
Botanical is the main colorway. It’s a speckled blend of grays, soft browns, greens, yellow, and oranges on a soft gray base color. Pretty much all the colors in the photograph.
Little Flower is the bright, happy yellow-orange complementary colorway, based on that pretty little flower.
And Leafy is the rich, nearly iridescent green complementary colorway.
All three colors are available on the following bases:
Aurora: fingering weight 100% Superwash Merino single-ply, 400 yards per 100g skein.
Philomena: fingering weight 100% Superwash Merino 4-ply, 438 yards per 100g skein.
Sunna: fingering weight 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% silk 3-ply, 356 yards per 115g skein.
Andromeda: DK weight 100% Superwash Merino single ply, 240 yards per 100g skein.
Verdande: worsted weight 75% Superwash Merino, 15% Cashmere, 10% silk 4-ply, 220 yards per 115g skein.
Please note that each base has its own listing for each color (because I haven’t figured out how to add variations to a listing on Shopify, when the variations have different prices).
Dyed-to-order listings will be open from June 19-June 30, 2018. Once listings are closed, all yarns will be dyed and shipped between July 15-25, 2018.
