Love the colors. My favorite is Meadow. I have a skein waiting for the perfect pattern to come along.

The colors are awesome I am trying to collect all of them LOLO

SBFagan said...

It's all about the colors -- SO intense and making a choice is nearly impossible! But then one does choose and I've never, ever been disappointed.

SBFagan said...

It's always hard to make a choice when looking at the yarns for a specific project...but when I finally do, I am never disappointed. The colors are just SO intense and wonderful!

SBFagan said...

Sorry - I was having trouble with the non-robot proving section!

Tricia Smith said...

The depth of colors are amazing. The softness of the yarn also is awesome to me!

Teresa said...

I love Mountain Colors Yarn for the colors! Everything I have ever knit with MC yarns has gotten lots of compliments.

I love the colors, especially the fun names! I feel good about giving projects as gifts because I have a great story about the yarn!

I love all the textures.

Laura said...

The Mountain Colors colorways have given me such an appreciation for color combinations that I would have otherwise never have tried. They are a feast for the eyes!!

Nikki S. said...

Having lived in the Bitterroot the last part of the '90's I loved the business model and how they started. My favorite memory was coming to you showroom about 4 years ago right after a dear friend had died. Your staff was so amazing and I loved being surrounded by all of the colors. I made a pair of socks out of Twizzle (my favorite of your yarns) with my purchases from that trip.

Mountain Colors was the first hand dyed yarn I fell in love with as a new knitter. I've always loved the colors - your combinations are gorgeous. My first socks were in Weaver's Wool Quarters - it remains my favorite sock yarn. Happy Anniversary!

Mountain Colors are truly representing the colors we like best in our visits to the great Rockies. There is no way for my camera to pick up all the colors and blends but your yarns are capturing them so clearly.

suburban prep said...

I love the range of the different types of yarn and then the saturation of the colors of the skeins that makes for beautiful garments and or other projects.

I love the hummingbird colorway

I will NEVER foget the very first time my friend Steph rubbed a Skein of Mountian Colors Jennette on my arm at a store when I was visiting my parents a couple summers ago. I fell in Luuuv! And I tell you the colors are to die for, I am telling my out of state friends about them constantly! Only gotten to knit with it once so far. But I am buying myself some more for my Birthday real soon!

knidiotinhavre said...

I will NEVER forget the day my friend Steph rubbed a skein of Mtn Colors on my arm at a store when visiting my parents one summer. It was so soft and the colors were to die for!

I will NEVER forget the day my friend STEPH brushed my arm with a skein of MTN Colors when I was visiting my folks one summer when annd the colors were to die for. Between the Combo I was in Luuuv!

Kniton said...

Here's a toast to 20 years of wonderful colors ranging from sublimely soft to super saturated. When I knit or crochet with your yarns, I can't help but smile, and when I wear things I have made from your yarns, I feel radiant. Hope your color creativity never ends!

Love the intensity of the colors! Plus I'm a sucker for anything that even hints at pinks, so the Loganberry is my very favorite (so far!)

I must confess I had not heard of Mountain Colors Hand Painted Yarns before Jackie E-S's newsletter. But the colors are absolutely GORGEOUS, and my husband and I share our July (4th) anniversary with the company! Congrats on 20 years in business; we have made it through 21 years of marriage so far :) ... Cindy

I love the variety of fibers, textures, and weights of your yarns and of course the colorways -whether brilliant or subtle, whether jewel-like, delicate, or smokey, they always are beautifully balanced and look absolutely good enough to eat.

Gabrielle said...

"Mountain Colors" says it all. I see the rolling hills, the quiet forests, the flash of bird wings, the flutter of butterflies and the flowers in meadows. All of it is there, along with the touch of a velvety mountain flower petal.

Marianne said...

I love the variety of colors and the subtle color transitions.

Deb said...

Just discovered Mountain Colors Hand Painted Yarns thanks to the HeartStrings Newsletter I just signed up for. I absolutely love the colors blended into of Flames of Fall and the Loganberry blends remind me of a sparkling ruby. Had to go check out your site, and there are so many wonderful blends to choose from...my mind is working overtime visulizing projects ;-)

The best thing about Mountain Colors is not that they are so beautiful, but that they stay that way - year after year, washing after washing. I have garments that I made 10+ years ago that still look as lovely as the first time I wore them

cguard(on rav) said...

I love that you are living my *alternate life*. I love each and every one of your kits either I would wear them or have a dear one I would love to make one for.

ikkinlala said...

I love how there are so many colour options that are variegated but not so contrasting that they hide stitch patterns.

Beautiful yarn, as always!

Ellen said...

The colors are equisite and just glow. Combine that with the wonderful feel of the yarn and you're in knitters' heaven.

woolgatherer said...

I knitted a hat with River Twist Whitewater and think it is one of the loveliest yarns I've ever used! Bought some Bearfoot at Hellen's Needlework in Mount Vernon, Washington, but haven't tried it yet.

Lori said...

I saw some of your yarn at a fiber show a year or so ago and fell madly in love. My friend and I were looking for a particular color of red, and there was a huge hank of yarn in every shade of red imaginable, and so beautifully done. There was one left and we grabbed it immediately!

You do really great work. Thank you for supplying us knitters with such beautiful yarn to work with.

MonkeyGurrrrrl said...

The colors. Simply breathtaking.

Karla said...

The depth and beauty of the colors and the way they are mixed together! Just Awesome!

I'm a huge fan of Crazyfoot for socks - it has great twist, wears like iron and the colors, of course, are to die for. Thanks, Mountain Colors, and congratulations on your anniversary.
