Pick a Color, Any Color (& Giveaway!)

Spud & Chloë friends, we need your help!

What will it be?

We’re about to add some fresh, new pops of color to Spud & Chloë Sweater line. One of my favorites, Spud & Chloë Sweater is the quintessential worsted-weight yarn in a blend of 55 percent superwash wool and 45 percent organic cotton. It’s machine washable and comes in generous 160-yard hanks. Practical as well as pretty, it’s a true workhorse in a versatile palette of 29 to die-for (or should that be to-”dye”-for?) colors. We’re planning on expanding that palette, and that’s where you come in. What colors do you think we should add to the current collection?

Barn, Popsicle, Jelly Bean, Watermelon, & Tiny Dancer

Are our rich reds and super-sweet pink your favorites?

Firecracker, Cider, Life Jacket, Pollen, & Firefly

Or are bold and zesty oranges and yellows more your style?

Chipmunk, Billiard, Turtle, & Grass

Maybe you’re more of a green girl or guy.

Lake, Moonlight, Skydiver, Waterslide, & Splash

Have you been feeling blue?

Grape Jelly & Lilac

Perhaps you’re more passionate about purple…

Root Beer, Chocolate Milk, Toast, & Ice Cream

Do you prefer the natural beauty of creams and browns?

Penguin, Manatee, Beluga, & Igloo

It’s not all black and white; some of us see things in shades of gray…


Have we missed one of your favorites? What colors of Spud & Chloë Sweater are you craving? Let us know in the comments. We’ll tabulate your suggestions, and com January, we’ll be offering brand-new colors chosen by you!

To thank you for your help three lucky readers (selected at random) will receive enough hanks of Spud & Chloë Sweater in the colors of their choice to make the Weekender Sweater, Half-Pint Dress, or Woodland Pullover. Then in January, we’ll send you two hanks of the new colors of your choice. Wow! Yarn now and later!  To enter, leave your color suggestion in the comments by Monday, August 26th. Good luck!

    I’d like to see a blue-gray color – a cross between Lake and Manatee would be nice. Plus, a deep forest green. I love Grape Jelly and Manatee, and would love to make the Woodland Pullover in either of those colors. Thank you for making such a wonderful yarn!

    I’m always combining blues, greens and yellows for my projects! But for next season I think that pale colours will be the trend
    Btw, have you thought in fluor?
    Nice giveaway!

    There can be never too much purple!

    Can’t decide either but I have narrowed it down to Lake or Manatee grets colors that work for so many occasions.

    I knit a lot for children of all ages. They all love deep royal purple. …I would have to find a different name though because I had an art teacher (many years ago) who was adamant that there was NO colour called purple …lilac,mauve,grape etc were acceptable. I am looking forward to your new additions!

    I absolutely love the color Jelly Bean (and the name!) Also love the waterslide and splash. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    What a great giveaway! None of my LYSs have S&C yarns! More purples would be awesome! How about something along the lines of eggplant, Byzantium, or Tyrian Purple – anything in that deep purple shade would be great to pair with Manatee or Chocolate Milk!

    This is a fantastic giveaway! Thanks for a chance to win. I love all the colors, but the ones speaking to me are Cider, Chipmunk, Chocolate Milk and Igloo.

    I would love a sweater in the Beluga, Splash or Toast so those would be my suggestions for additions to your line. P.S. Would love to win:)

    The deepest purest true red, yes, a fire truck would be happy to wear this color. Call it, “Deep Fire”.

    No hint of cherry will do. No lightness, just that red blazing through.
