Featured Colorway--Huckleberry

Huckleberries are everywhere right now.  They are a small berry, similar to blueberries, that grow wild here in Western Montana.

At the Farmers' Market you can buy them by the 1# bag and in the woods folks have their secret spot where they go to pick their berries.  Bears also love huckleberries so that is a huge factor when picking berries in the woods!!  They make delicious jam, syrup, candy, ice cream, milkshakes, pie, muffins, etc.  YUM. 




Our colorway Huckleberry has the purple of ripe huckleberries, the reds of the less ripe berries and this colorway continues to be a favorite.  If you are in Montana be sure to taste these wonderful berries and check out a skein of our yarn too!!
