Dream in Color Pop-Up! Club: September.

Dream in Color’s Pop Up! Club is back! Every month, we’re getting a special new colorway from Dream in Color, a Tucson-based producer of small batch hand-dyed yarns. September’s new limited edition colorway is here while supplies last!

Dream in Color Smooshy Cashmere:

  • fingering weight
  • 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, 10% nylon
  • 400 yards/100g
  • $34 each

This month, dyer Veronica was inspired by the muted antique colors of dried flowers, and she painted some of them on Dream in Color’s aptly-named Smooshy Cashmere.

Shades of green dominate, from pale sage to deep forest, mottled with flecks of yellow, blue and brown.

Smooshy Cashmere is perfect for a special pair of socks, like Dawn Henderson’s “Lyne Socks” or “Autumn Dawn Socks,” but for a larger project as the season slowly turns, a cozy shawl is just the thing. Several months ago, I created colorways for Tamy Gore’s “The Drifter” shawl, and they caused such a stir, I decided to make a fresh batch with this new Pop Up! Club shade.

The rustic woolen-spun Tukuwool Fingering is an intriguing counterpoint to the luxurious Smooshy Cashmere, and the heathered colors play beautifully with these variegated skeins.

Tukuwool Fingering:

  • fingering weight
  • 75% Finnsheep wool, 25% Texel wool
  • 213 yards/50 g
  • $12.50 each

“The Drifter” is decorated with slipped stitches and stripes, and Gore provides instructions for using three shades or two.

If the two-color combinations especially speak to you, check out Joji Locatelli’s “Circle of Friends Shawl,” too!

Get in touch if you’d like to place an order – we can ship these pretty skeins directly to you or hold your purchase here for pickup while our storefront is temporarily closed!
