We have all been touched by someone who has been affected by breast cancer. So, for every skein of HiKoo's Rylie yarn in the Power Pink colorway, FiberWild will donate $5.00 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through the end of May!
The mission of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) is to prevent and cure breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research. BCRF is the highest rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. with 91% of all donations going to research and awareness programs.

Knit the Rose Wedge Shawl
by Amy Loberg
A beautiful lace pattern triangle sits atop a solid garter stitch wedge to create this slightly asymmetrical shawl. The wedge is knit first, then short rows are worked to create the lace triangle. The Rose Wedge Shawl is large enough to wear wrapped, drapey enough to lie beautifully around your neck, and soft enough that you will wear it all year long!
Crochet the Byzantine Shawl
by Amy Loberg
Looking for a simple, toss-on accessory to keep warm? Check out this elegant shawl! The relatively simple but well designed shawl looks both stunning and timeless but is not hard to crochet. With a gentle crescent-shape, a lovely half circle stitch pattern and a beautiful openwork edging inspired by Byzantine architecture ... this shawl is a joy to wear!
HiKoo's “Rylie” is a unique, luxurious natural blend yarn. Linen adds a rustic look to Rylie, baby alpaca adds softness and the mulberry silk adds drape and a hint of sheen. Great for any season, this sport weight yarn would make a soft cozy shawl or fun unique top.

Celebrating 25 Years of Mountain Color Yarns ...
Revisit a favorite project or discover a design you missed!
For the last 25 years, the creative team at Mountain Colors Yarn has brought us beautiful fiber in colors inspired by the Rocky Mountain West! Diana and Leslie each have a unique color sense. By combining their individual aesthetics they are continually introducing amazing new colorways that sparks creativity in both knitters and crocheters.
We are proud to have supported Mountain Colors in our LYS since we opened in Galena, Illinois in May of 2004. Watching them add to their color and yarn lines has been a continual source of inspiration for many of Amy's designs.
Creating new colors are another way we've enjoyed working with Mountain Colors over the years. To date we offer 15 FiberWild custom colors in 10 yarns, most of which have patterns Amy specifically designed to show off their gorgeous hues! Below is a sampling of Amy's "best of" designs worked in Mountain Colors yarns. We hope you will revisit a favorite project or discover a design or color you missed!
Happy 25th Anniversary
to Diane, Leslie and the entire team at
Mountain Colors Yarn!
