Feature Colorway--Indian Paintbrush

Our colorway, Indian Paintbrush, was named after a plant that grows all over western Montana.  It blooms in the Spring at lower elevations and by mid to late summer it blooms at higher elevations up in the mountains.  It grows in many different shades of red-orange and it is one of my favorite wildflowers. 

On a recent camping trip I saw a lot of Indian Paintbrush....
and this spring I saw lots of Indian Paintbrush.
And here at Mountain Colors we have lots of Indian Paintbrush!!

If you have something knit in this colorway we would love to see a picture!  You can share it in our Ravelry Group or on the Mountain Colors Facebook page.

Happy knitting!

Reversible Cables Eyelet Stole

Our friend Jackie at HeartStrings Fiberarts has designed the lovely new Reversible Cables Eyelet Stole made in Mountain Colors Bearfoot.  We saw it at her booth at the June trade show and it is even more beautiful in person.  She is such a talented designer.  She has used our Bearfoot yarn and our Winter Lace yarn in a variety of designs.  If you are looking for a new lace project during the heat of August try out a HeartStrings design and our Bearfoot or Winter Lace yarn!!
