Our NEW Colorful Relationship


We are back from the TNNA trade show in Long Beach and wanted to share a new project we are beginning. We are going to have a year long series of kits...a new one each quarter...that combine our yarn with yarn from Lorna's Laces. This idea was well received by the yarn shop owners attending the trade show and they were excited about the idea that knitters could try yarns from both companies all in one project.

The first kit will be shipped to stores as of February 1st and will be a beautiful shrug that combines our Half Crepe with Helen's Lace from Lorna's Laces. It is available in 5 color combinations (our yarn colorways will be Ruby River, Chinook, Evergreen, Yellowstone and Moondance and these will combine with coordinating yarn from Lorna's).

The beginning of May we have a sock kit designed by Cat Bordhi, then the third quarter we will have a vest designed by Ginger Luters. The fourth project is still in the works.

We hope you love this shrug as much as we do!! It is soft, full of drape, light weight and elegant!!

Pictures of Mountain Colors and a question at the end...

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. Mine was great...both of my sons were home from college and we had a nice visit with them. Since I had the camera memory card out at the computer I thought I would post some pictures of things at Mountain Colors. For those with dial-up service this may be a bit slow to load....

We have been given the opportunity to purchase organic wool for dyeing. It would be the same gauge as our Weavers' Wool yarn, would NOT be a superwash and it would probably be dyed in organic dyes. Would anyone be interested in this yarn?? We would love to hear from you about this before we decide to jump in. We are also going to poll the shop owners we talk to at the trade show next week. Don't be shy!!! Let us hear from you!!
