Teton Yarn Company Hand Dyed Mountain Sock Yarn, a durable but soft, 4 ply Superwash Merino Sock Yarn with generous yardage with the right amount of twist to hold up to socks but soft enough to wear next to the skin for a variety of projects such as shawls, shawlettes, baby blankets, wraps, gloves and hats. This is my go to sock yarn for my husband and friends as the Tetons are hard on socks but this one holds up time and time again.
Colorway Forest Fire. Each summer forest fires burn through the national forests; some caused by man made causes, others by dry lightening storms. No matter what the cause, forest fires alter the landscape of the Tetons forever. Signs of forest fires from the 50's and 60's can still be seen in Grand Teton National Park between on the ridges above Bradley Lake. While devastating, forest fires by a vital cycle of regrowth and renewal in forests, helping to control bug infestations and disease, clearing out old trees to allow new trees to grow, and providing meadows for elk, deer and moose to graze.

Dyeing: Teton Yarn Company uses color fast acid dyes on all our yarns. My yarns are all hand dyed by me in my yarn studio in Teton Valley, Idaho. Yarns are dyed in groups of 2-3 in most cases and I do my best to ensure consistency in each batch, however, there will be some variation even within a dye lot. Different dye lots will be siblings, rather than twins, so it is recommended you order enough for a project in one order for best results.
