Color Notes Yarns

| Monday, September 9, 2013
 


Before I take you on our weekly yarn review, I wanted to you have a look at an amazingly designed website!  Color Notes Yarns has one of the best sites I have seen in a long time, so user friendly and very inviting with all the color and simplicity.


Now having said that, let me introduce you to Color Notes Yarns and the Family behind the goodness!

"Hi, we’re Jill and Bernie, and together we founded Color Notes Yarn.  We’ve been married for over 20 years and share a passion for color and for making things by hand.  We’re inspired by colors from nature and the landscape, and feel that color brings energy and joy to life.  Our signature look is a vibrant mix of colors blended together on the skein, and the more colors the better!  We are committed to producing outstanding yarns that will enable you to take a simple pattern and create a stunning project that’s worthy of your time and effort.  Every skein of Color Notes Yarn is hand painted in small batches, using the highest quality natural fiber yarns we can find.  We hand dye our yarn in our home studio located in the beautiful San Francisco Bay area, and we can’t imagine living anywhere else in the world."

It is easy to see how any and all of these stunning yarns would be desired.  All Inspired by travels and colors in nature, what could be better to use for your next knitting project.  I love the high twist to the yarns, you always have such great stitch definition when you knit them up. 
 
True to life colors of these yarns are what really give Color Notes Yarns the upper hand when you are wanting a richly dyed yarn.  You will be very pleased at the depth of saturation the each yarn has.  Some have a slight tonal look others are a true solid. 
 
Any and all of these yarns really must be tried out by you my readers and crafters.  Talk a look at the fall colors that are in the Color Notes Yarn shop and get to knitting!!!

I am a sucker for all things fall. My favorite season for the colors and the cooler weather that is so encouraging for knitting. Not that I need any.
