Top of the Month Club August
The colors of the August harvest match Augusts hot temperatures. The salmon pink of sweet tomatoes and the red-orange of acid tomatoes sing next to the bright deep yellows and yellow-oranges of the sweet cherry tomatoes. Add in the deep reds and chocolates of ripe chiles and sweet peppers, plus a bouquet of lilac zinnias under a blue sky and you get our colorway, Summer Heat.
The wool this month is Finn Top. For those of you who havent yet spun Finn, you are in for a treat! The micron count of this Finn is in the same 25 micron range as our BFL, so you can use it for both outer garments and garments that are going to be worn closer to the skin. Finn has a satiny luster that gives the yarn an inner glow. The fiber itself is open and easy to spin and makes yarn with lots of body, whether your yarn is thick, thin, or in-between.
The wool/silk this month is our best-beloved blend of Merino/SuperwashMerino/TussahSilk. As a dyer, I am wild about the 3 layers of color that this blend gives and as a spinner, I love how the Superwash Merino and silk helps the fibers slide past each other when drafting. Plenty of nuanced color plus easy drafting makes this blend delightful indeed!
The companion tonal colorways to combine with Summer Heat are August Violet and Goldenrod: you can find them in our Etsy shop.
