Our Colorways

We pulled together a list of our colorways for your reference.

Colorway: Agate: This seasoned colorway features dusky blues, olive greens, and smokey amethyst making is a truly wearable color. Great for any wardrobe. They guys will love this one!

Colorway: Ankh: Brown and Turquoise make a wonderful team! Ankh variegates from purplish brown chocolate and mossy green to several shades of earthy turquoise with hints of amber and cobalt blue. I was reading an Egyptian series and listening to Terry Pratchett novels (but not at the same time!) when designing this colorway. Ankh was the only thing they had in common.

Mutating Variegates: Not just a gradient yarn… Not just a multi-hued variegate… Mutating Variegates are the best of BOTH! This is kaleidoscopic style of dyeing is so captivating and special! Each and every skein is hand-dyed individually and will be unique. We don’t offer coordinating colors, but do suggest some semi-solids that will pair well with this colorway.

Berry: Purple!!! This berry special colorway is a reboot from a club many years ago and has been one of the most asked after colorways we have ever done! Think raspberry sorbet, the purples and pinks of this colorway will fulfill your late night, sweet toothed, cravings!

Colorway: Boreal: Earthy, deep hues of green, golden grain, tawny orange, henna red and chocolatey purple. This colorway works well with any skin tone and is very flattering to wear. Dress it up or keep it mellow. Boreal is easy to fit into your wardrobe and the menfolk like it too.

Colorway: Blaze: Reds and oranges, magentas and golds. This colorway isn’t just warm, it’s blazing hot! Blaze consists of reds and oranges in many hues from deep wine to marigold yellow in one smooth transition. Fiery and glorious!

Colorway: Bliss: Delight in the joy this new colorway will bring to your life! A blissful combination of clear purple, happy blues in multiple shades melting to soft seafoam green.

Colorway: Cavern: Cavern is a reboot from our “In Doors” “And Out” Club. Inspired by an Icelandic basalt cave, these unlikely colors adorn the entrance and draw you in! Soft pink, striking purple, cobalt blues, aquamarine and yellow green. Take a peek at a photo of this cave to get a feel for the majesty of this natural phenomena.

Colorway: Carousel: Like its namesake, this colorway is charming and merry. The colors run from a beautiful glowing orange to coral, pink, orchid, and end at deep purple. Can you hear the calliope playing that old song? Carousel is gorgeous in socks and fantastic for shawls.

Colorway: Circle: Cool greens and blues play nicely with purple and lime. Gorgeous and classy on Tasty and Yummy, our merino/cashmere/nylon yarns. The fresh variations that run through each color are like light dancing on tropical waters.

Colorway: Cold Snap: This colorway’s frosted blues, pine greens, friendly brown, and winter white make it easy to wear with a variety of looks. Inspiration came from the muffled silence of a cold winter’s hike interrupted by the cold snap of branches heavy with ice glinting in the sunshine.

Colorway: Dawn: Daybreak brings the promise of a new beginning. The first pink blush of dawn emerges from the deeper blues and purples of the early morning sky.

Colorway: Decadent: The Lazy days of summer have it made in the shade with this hazy, decadent colorway.  Greens and blues flow gently to purples and oranges.
This reboot from the Spring 2015 club was reformulated to work with our current dyes.  It has changed enough for us give it a new name.  Welcome back Decay.

Colorway: Discworld: Vibrant blue, soothing green, and neutral brown and gray. This colorway was inspired by Terry Pratchett’s Discworld: a flat world, the ocean running off the edges, balanced on the backs of four elephants standing on the back of a giant turtle swimming through space (Josh Kirby’s illustration can be viewed here, and Paul Kidby’s here). After Sir Terry Pratchett’s passing, I wanted to honor the mind that came up with characters as vibrant as any of our colorways: the god Nuggan unto whom the color blue is an abomination, Post Master Moist Von Lipwig (who sold stamps by making them look, and smell, like cabbages), the leather-armored and cardboard-booted Captain Vimes, and many more.

Colorway: Dissent: “I would like to be remembered as someone who used whatever talent she had to do her work to the very best of her ability.” from the mind of Notorious RBG straight to the heart of your Twisted Fiber Art Team! Intense and saturated Blues, Lavenders and Royal Purples.

Colorway: Downton: Beautiful sky blues perfectly united with classic gray. Inspired by my favorite dishy show by the same name, it’s the cat’s pajamas!

Colorway: Dusk: A still desert sky makes the slow transition from day to night in this mysterious, muted colorway. Steal the twilight with these sandy tans, gloaming grays, and midnight purples. Velvety-soft, calm, and lovely.

Colorway: Eclipse: Heavenly bodies in motion inspire amazing color! Soft Cream and solar yellow radiate to shadowy purple in this stellar colorway!

Colorway: Eventide: A solitary moment in time as day slips into night. Enjoy Eventide’s hazy purple, soft rose, and subtle apricot at any time of day.

Colorway: Fickle: Greenish-blue and purplish-pink with deeper blues and purples between. I can’t decide which part of Fickle I like best! This winsome colorway was popular in a past club. Both socks and shawls rock in Fickle!

Colorway: Fox: From the soft black snout to the bright bushy tail this colorway is looking to burrow its way into your stash! Originally a part of the “Look Down” club collection. Soft black, oranges and cream.

This colorway has been rekindled! Once known as Ember, Ignite is richer and more saturated than the previous version.

Colorway: Lagoon: Clear blue waters meet verdant foliage. From far away, socks knit from this colorway appear to be simple blue and green striped. Upon closer inspection (and who can resist inspecting hand-knit socks?) you will see lovely details and a variety of blues and greens that make up the two dominant colors. This is a good option for man-socks.

Gradient: Le Cirque: Inspired by a wonderful book, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. The magical realm of the circus is enhanced by a backdrop of black and white and all the grays between. Bold. Dramatic. This colorway is a great choice for a contrast with a brighter colorway for fair isle or stranded work or as a theatrical statement on its own. This colorway is black to palest gray.

Colorway: Leprechaun: A mystical fairy who has a love of shoes, grants wishes, and is willing to share his well-earned gold with the savvy human who finds his stash. That’s my kind of elf! Soft teal, shamrock green, bright chartreuse and all the hues in-between.
