We just got in a new shipment of Mountain Colors Thursday evening, and just in time because it is COLD! What is going on with the weather!? I hope this is not indicative of winter because at the rate we’re going it will be -30 degrees by December!
In preparation for the apparently unbearable winter ahead of us, I say we start stitching like crazy now so that we all don’t freeze to death by Christmas. And what better yarn to kick off our fall projects than Mountain Colors? We’ve carried Mountain Colors hand dyed yarns in various weights, fibers, and colors for several years but if you haven’t experienced it for yourself, now is your chance because it will certainly fly out the door fast (it always does!). You can do many, many projects with these two yarns that require only one skein. A luxurious, warm, artisan crafted shawl or socks for less than $25? No brainer if you ask me. Here’s what we got:
This is the lace weight, Winter Lace Junior. It’s 600 yards of 50% Wool and 50% Silk (aka, like butta’). Here’s the colors we received (in ascending order to the first photo above):
Redtail Hawk, Ruby River, Harmony Rose, Mountain Twilight, Harmony Lake, and Chinook.
Here’s the other half shipment:
This is the sock weight, Bearfoot. It’s 350 yards (enough for one pair) of 60% Superwash Wool, 25% Mohair, and 15% Nylon. Here’s the colors we received (in ascending order to the first photo above):
Indian Paintbrush, Portland Rose, Northwind, Peppergrass, Chinook, Sandstone, and Lady Slipper.
Mountain Colors has a ton of great patterns for their sock yarn, and we have several of them available here at The Studio.
Hope to see you all soon, trickling in to gaze at these one-of-a-kind gems.
