Amazing shipping time. Considering it came from Alaska to Northern NY. The skeins are in balls and I’ve found my needles. Can’t wait to see how the colors flow. Wild Iris is the color.

Gorgeous yarn!

Fabulous colors on a nice soft sock base. Makes me happy just to fondle it; I can hardly wait to actually knit with it!

Lovely Colors and Squishiness off the charts

This Wild Iris is awesome! This yarn reminds me of my years in Alaska during the summer and the Blue Flag Iris which grew there in the wild or my yard. 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 that is meticulous in her attention to detail.

Wild Iris…. Tangles
Written by Connie Caruso on Dec 4th 2021

Lovely color…as advertised. Wound this morning….sad there was only ONE tie on the hank…..last 15 g I had to hand wind due all the tangles. Hope this isn’t your typical, as I buy a lot of yarn, and was excited to see all your wonderful colors. I have found 3 ties seem to be standard. Maybe this was a fluke, but it was a mess. But it’s wound, now to knit. Thx!!!

Color is everything too me. I am in love with the color ways. Color invokes feelings and memories. Quality is great too. Looking forward to my next purchase

Looks like a field in summer
Written by Kiska on Aug 13th 2020

I was going between this and Lupine, but let's be honest I'll just end up getting Lupine too at some point. My only wish is that it had more of the rich dark purple as our Alaskan fields of iris here in Southeast lean to the more dark purple side. I am excited to mix this in with some Grizzly and Sitka Spruce, Denali will look nice too with the speckles of blue.
