October Club – Purple RainBy
I was going to call this “Charcoal Plum” but really, is “Purple Rain” not perfect? Not only is is homage to the favourite musical artist of our resident wonder worker, but the words evoke the greys contrasted with bright hits of purple, which was the goal here.
I was also going to do something more October’y (we explored a harvest peaches option) but orange wasn’t calling to me this month. This month I wanted rich lipstick, cool rains, sweet plums, and something that reached back to my misguided youth as a little goth kid.

Thus “Purple Rain” was born – transitioning from a rich, plum purple through a bright pink band and deepening to purple again before hitting lilac and cooling off to grey. A complex blend, but totally worth it. Purple Rain will be available on our website for the first 36 hours of October, from 9am EST on Sunday the 1st to 9pm on the 2nd.
I feel like I need to address the elephant in the room here; Copper Slate took a long time to ship. I don’t want to come up here to make excuses, but please know that we did all we could to get it out faster. Paypal holding our funds, combined with the popularity of the colour resulted in a much longer fulfillment process than we would normally consider reasonable, and for that you have our sincere apologies!
With opals, yet another reason that I should have had my birthday in October! I loved (and ordered) the September colorway, but this one is totally ALL my favorite colors! I will just assume that SEEING this colorway is yet another present today. BTW my package arrived yesterday, so it did get here in time for today’s festivities. Many, many thanks!
Good morning, I would like to order the new color Purple rain. In which category is it coming? How can I purchase it
I tried to post a reply yesterday, but it did not take! As with opals as a birthstone, this colorway just further convinces me that I should have been born in October. I loved the September colorway, but this one is totally my style. Getting to see it yesterday on my birthday was gift enough. BTW my Copper Slate and other yarns DID arrive in time for the Big Day — and all are gorgeous! Many, many thanks!
I know, I know-I should read my emails on time. Is there any Purple Rain left? I was weaving scarves for a show (hung today-one piece already sold!) & ignoring my emails…. it is gorgeous! (& I’m not a big purple fan)

Your yarn is stunning. I love that you take inspiration from the world around you and use it in your beautiful colour ways. Where does one order your club colours. As an artist your yarn is an inspiration to me and I would love to use it in my designs.
