The May Full Moon, the Flower Moon is up at Teton Yarn Company. The Flower Moon is when wildflowers begin to bloom in earnest across the Teton Landscape. For the Flower Moon, I picked the colors of the many Teton Wildflowers: Paintbrush, Lupine, Mule Flower, Bluebells, Phlox, Flowering Sage and many more.

The Flower Moon will be a full lunar eclipse for us in the Grand Tetons in addition to being a Super Moon where the moon will appear bigger than normal in the night sky. With the lunar eclipse in mind, I picked my new yarn base Yosemite to the create the Flower Moon. Yosemite is a 2-ply Superwash Merino with one ply having black merino. Yosemite is perfect for wraps, shawls and garments, being incredibly squishy soft with great bloom. My free pattern available on Ravelry, the Teewinot Shawl will be perfect for Yosemite.

I dyed several new color ways of Yosemite to showcase this amazing new yarn base: Take a Hike in honor of the many hundreds of miles of amazing trails in the Grand Tetons, Where the Buffalo Roam for the herds of bison that graze in eastern Grand Teton National Park and Desert Bloom after an amazing raft trip on the San Juan River of Southern Utah.
