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!

Navajo is soft, self-striping aran-weight yarn that comes in eight different colorways, so there is something for everyone. Because Navajo is not a plied yarn, the acrylic adds durability as well as stability to the wool. This yarn is somewhat lofty, you can expect it to be warm, light-weight and soft to the touch. You also get more yardage compared to plied yarns of the same gauge.
