Crazyfoot is our best-selling sock yarn. A blend of superwash merino and nylon, this durable sock yarn takes the dyes brilliantly. Soft enough for shawls and cowls, this reliable sock yarn has been a favorite amongst knitters for more than 20 years.

Be sure to “save the date” for the upcoming retreat in Petoskey, MI. Sally Melville will be presenter. Dates are Sunday – Wednesday, September 24 through 27. Further details and registration information will be available soon.

Mountain Colors
Leslie and Diana started Mountain Colors Yarn 25 years ago with a love of color and fiber. Inspired by the beautiful Montana mountains, they continue to craft hand painted yarns. Twizzlefoot is a fingering weight version of Mountain Colors popular Twizzle yarn. A strand of silk is plied with superwash merino and nylon to create beautiful heathered colorways. Made for socks, it’s also great for other accessories like shawls, hats, and gloves. And since it’s superwash everything you make will be machine washable.
