Lake Superior... Stunning


All lovely but I love the intergalactic and thank you for the giveaway


They are all lovely, my favourite is Tulip Field.


I love the Lake Superior colorway!

Andrea Zukor

What stunning yarn! So hard to pick a favorite color way. But right now the rich gold of Harvest is speaking to me. Beautiful work Rachel!


Wow, some beautiful golden hues ... but I have fallen for the mysterious mountainous tones of Intergalactic. Maybe a darker colourway based on the deep sprucey green tints in the intergalactic colourway would make for a rich two skein combination. What a magnificent shawl might emerge.


Ooh, I love the colours in peacock. I usually go for anything blue (e.g. Lake Superior) but the green/purple combination really speaks to me.

Thanks for the intro to this new dyer!


What is her name on etsy? I wanted to buy some yarn. I tried Great Lakes Tweed but it did not come up.

Well what a clever lady. I popped onto the Etsy shop and what isn't there to like on there. Those colours and shades are Devine I love them all but particularly Mineralise and Intergalactic. Rachel has a very good eye for colour if they don't quite turn out the way she thinks they will. I wish her all the luck for her future plans.


I love the Harvest one :)


Thanks for this giveaway! What a great yarn and great story. I have to say that I think my favorite colorway is "fire on the mountain". It is just lovely!


I really like harvest colorway.


Fire on the Mountain is definitely my favorite. I am always in search of the perfect orange color way. This looks like it might be it!

The colors are all so beautiful that I couldn't pick just one, so for me they would be tulip field and thankful.


What lovely color!!!!! I think 'Lake Superior' is mt favorite. Followed by 'Fire on the Mountain' and 'Clara Ford's Roses.'

Thank you for sharing this great dyer with us!

I'm torn between Fire on the Mountain and Thankful, but all are beautiful! Thanks for the introduction!

Pamela Moriarty

Clara Park's Roses really caught my eyes. My feet feel best in red socks.

Melissa aka Witchknit

I think they are all beautiful, but "Thankful" is really speaking to me. Speaking of which; Thank You both for sharing.


I love Lake Superior and the opportunity to discover Rachel and her talents
