100% American-grown and spun Merino & Merino/Rambouillet wool from Shaniko Wool Company. This boutique-style yarn is processed in South Carolina, dyed and milled in North Carolina, and comes in an earthy jewel-toned spectrum of beautiful colors inspired by the landscape and skyline of Oregon's high desert. Featuring a soft hand with an artisanal appeal, High Desert is ideal for knitting texture, cables, and colorwork.
Like a mountain peaks' ridgeline' post-sunset, the deep indigo hue of Dusk mimics the fleeting wonder of nature that is early nightfall.
Riverbend is a dark and brooding blue-green hue, similar to the colors found in the cold depths of a swiftly flowing river.
Mimicking the pristine clarity of the nightsky on a cold winter's night, Stargazing's serene slate blue color shines through from the darkest cosmic depths.
A rich medium green with yellow undertones, Willow rivals the lush verdant shade of its namesake, often found nestled along the banks of meandering rivers and hidden gullies.
Named for the striking yellow wild mushroom, this color is a medium gold with a brown undertone. Pairs well with nearly every other color in the High Desert line.
We sent a cutting of this high desert flower to our mill to get a shade this buttery. This warm yellow pairs well with other warm and neutral colors in the High Desert line.
Named for one of the 7 Wonders of Oregon, Painted Hills is the color of the bright terra cotta orange found in this stunning natural rock formation.
Campion grows in exposed, rocky locations like the Oregon high desert. This rich violet-purple pairs well with most other colors in the High Desert line.
Named for one of Oregon's most important trees, Alder is a true neutral tan that plays well with any other color.
A deep dark brown is cooled down by charcoal gray and a hint of cream to create Mustang Heather, a rich cool-toned brown.
A warm darker brown, Truffle is a rich and versatile neutral color that looks great with other earthy shades and vibrant pop colors.
Forge is a dense dark grey with blue undertones, similar in appearance to the mineral-rich deposits of Josephinite found along eastern Oregon river channels.
Inspired by the vast fields of igneous rock found throughout the high desert region, Lava Fields is a dark obsidian shade that resembles ancient layers of basalt.
A soft pewter color with brown undertones, Quail is a balanced medium grey well suited for using in monochromatic gradients or as a neutral contrast color in colorwork garments.
