Love, love, love!

I'm not a huge fan of pink unless it's outside and flowers but I have granddaughters who do like pink and Fireweed is just perfect. The DK works up fast and an Indubitable Little Hug will be on it's way to Utah soon!

Lovely Colors and Squishiness off the charts

This Fireweed colored yarn is AWESOME!!! Love the colors and the texture is awesome and the yarn smells wonderful as the dyer washes them with soap as a last step. This is a dyer who is meticulous in her attention to detail.

I haven’t started to knit with it yet, but the skein is lovely - just like the photos. Very happy with this one. :)

Love this SO MUCH

Can there just be oodles of this yarn color in every weight so I can make all the things out of this? The DK is incredibly soft, and the pinks and purples are vivid and bold. Mixed with either Birch or Denali this bold color really pops, with the high wool content making it a backcountry hat favorite yarn here for me in Alaska. The speckles of brown and green are the attention to detail that make this yarn perfect. I WILL be ordering more of this.

Very pretty. A bit more pink than lavender. It will make beautiful socks.
