December National Park Mini Skein Sets: Sequoia-King’s Canyon National Parks

  • A tall sequoia tree and mini skeins of blue, green, red and brown yarn.

In December, Teton Yarn Company is traveling to the southern Sierra Nevadas to explore the wonders of joint national parks: Sequoia-King’s Canyon National Parks; home of some of the largest trees in the world: the giant sequoias.

Our first stop in our journey is the General Sherman Sequoia, the largest tree in the world at 275 feet tall and 36 feet wide at the base. For our next stop, we visit Tehipite Dome, the highest free standing granite dome in the Sierra Nevadas, even taller than Half Dome, to catch the first light of the sun. We’ll next hike Moro Rock to catch the setting sun. Our last stop is the General Grant Sequoia, Our Nation’s Christmas Tree as designated by President Calvin Coolidge and declared a national shrine by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. On the second Sunday of December, the Sanger Chamber of Commerce, has a non-denominational Christmas celebration with a wreath laid at the foot of General Sherman by park rangers.

Each Mountain Sock Mini Skein Set features six mini skeins of Mountain Sock, 20 grams of 4-ply, 100% Superwash Merino at 87 yards per mini skein. Each set is perfect for color work, socks, a gradient shawl and so much more. Each set is only available until December 31 when we will move on to our next National Park.

May Full Moon The Flower Moon is Rising at Teton Yarn Company

  • A skein of rainbow yarn above a photo of wildflowers in front of the moon.

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.

April Full Moon Series: Pink Moon

  • A spiral skein of green and pink yarn.

Each month, Teton Yarn Company creates a OOAK colorway to celebrate the different full moons of the year. In April, the full moon is known as the Pink Moon. The Pink Moon is named after the pink ground phlox which is one of the first wildflowers to bloom after the snows melt away. This month, the Pink Moon is featured on Mountain Sock, a 4-ply 100% Superwash Merino at 438 yards/100 grams. While Mountain Sock does not have any nylon, with its tight and balanced twist, it holds fantastic for socks but soft enough for garments and has generous yardage for shawls.

You can find some of our past Full Moon Color series, such as February the Snow Moon on Mountain Sock and March the Crow Moon on Glacier Sock, on the website. Pink Moon will be going live April 23 at 6 pm MDT at www.tetonyarn.com.
