If you ever visit Sedona, be sure to hike West Fork just to the north. It's a hidden gem of a forest in the midst of the desert full of flowing water and huge rocks and beautiful shades of green. In the fall, it's even more beautiful with all the autumn colors. We hiked it when the colors were changing. There's red, mulberry, orange, yellow, pine green, midnight blue, eggplant, teal green, beige, reddish brown, and gold, and I used all those colors to make this yarn.
I dyed it using my splashed and speckled method, which means every skein will be different--same colors but different placement of those colors.
I dyed it on Quick and Cozy Bulky which is a 3-ply yarn made of 100% superwash merino. It has great stitch definition and wonderful squishiness. It's perfect for when you want something that works up quickly without sacrificing softness.YARN FACTS
