Top of the Month Club October
For brazen, unrestrained color, FALL is hard to beat. The greens of summer are slipping into their party clothes and soon the whole landscape will be dressed in reds, golds, deep plums, stalwart greens, and an enormous mix of browns, for the last wild color party of the year.
Of course I couldnt resist the temptation to party right along with the rest of October: introducing Fall Gathering.
The wool for this months club is Shetland, direct from the Shetland Islands. I am very lucky to have purchased this wool: it is from a small scale Shetland Island wool cooperative of 700 small farms and the amount of wool available in this color is limited. I should have enough wool for everyones reorders, but anyone wanting a large quantity should put in their reorder as soon as possible. The wool itself is a dusty red-brown-grey and this natural color breathes itself into Fall Gathering, producing a hue that cant be gotten another way.
This months wool/silk selection is Merino/Tussah Silk, in an 80/20 combination. This is a lovely blend that I have used a lot in the past: it has all the treasured qualities of Merino softness, bounce, and muted luster combined with the strength and shine of tussah silk.
There are two companion colorways this month. Fall Browns an ode to the diversity of brown bright and golden, dark and deep, and all the browns in between that fill the fall landscape and Fall Violet, a bow to the wild range of complicated violets that continue to stimulate and amaze me through this incredible season.
