Happy Summer Solstice! Today, we rejoice in the sun and light on the longest day of the year. To celebrate, we have created a new colorway: Sun Day.

~~~

I am a Summer girl through and through. Growing up in Minnesota, I lived for the long, hot days of Summer, when the trees are full of lush leaves, butterflies stretch their wings and float overhead, bees whose little legs are laden with pollen work away, and fields are peppered with pops of colorful blooms. Though we enjoy moderate weather in the Bay Area throughout the year, there is still that special, electric atmosphere during Summer; the plants, flowers, and bees shimmering and dancing, reflecting and absorbing the sun's rays. Everything feels expansive.

It only seemed natural to create a color using from our homegrown marigolds. We use the petals to print tiny flecks of golden sunshine onto the yarn. The flash of vibrant pink, reminiscent of bougainvillea, is added using cochineal, and finally, a layer of deep, warm, rusty orange for grounding. Within the bold swathes of colors, are small soft moments -- marigold petals lay on top of petal pink -- reflections of a long, full Summer day, where so much can and does happen.

Sun Day is available on three yarn bases:

Love wool? Then Flock (290y / 50g) is yours. Made of US Rambouillet sheep's wool, Flock is cozy, soft and homey.

Frond (50 g / 459 yards), a radiant beam of halo and glow, due to its content of 72% kid mohair and 28% silk.

Floating - 70% Alpaca ~ 20% Silk ~ 10% Cashmere
Our softest yarn, with 437 yards / 100g, you can surely use it to create a single skein scarf or shawl. Or combine it with another yarn, to create an even larger piece, such as Swoop!
