Sunrise Fiber Co. Yarn Review


I love yarn and I love color, so Sunrise Fiber Co. is a perfect match for me!  Wren, the shop owner, dyes all of the yarns in her home studio with hand mixed dyes and she really has an eye for color.  This shop's vibrant colors make it stand out from the competition 

Sunrise Fiber Co. has a long list of repeatable colorways (past and present colors and combinations that can be duplicated)--which is great, because they are all gorgeous!  I also love that Wren lists all of the yarn bases she has available and clearly presents all the information that a knitter or crocheter could want (yardage, gauge, and care).  This is very helpful, and especially so when buying yarn over the internet.

I love the yarn that I received to review.  I told Wren that I'd love something with pink, but to surprise me.  She sent me Neon Flamingo and I couldn't be happier with it!

The dye job is beautiful.  The pink truly is neon and compliments the silver and grey tones nicely.  It is a variegated yarn, and I love how the colors worked out with my fan stitch pattern on my scarf.

The yarn is soft.  The high quality of this yarn is immediately apparent when you touch it.

It crochets very easily.  It was a pleasure to work with.  The yarn slipped easily along my hook.  I never hit snares or any rough patches.

I am very pleased with the scarf that I made using the yarn from Sunrise Fiber Co..  I used a stitch pattern from my favorite crochet book and simply worked through my entire skein of yarn. I shared the humble beginnings of this scarf with you a couple of weeks ago.


I will be sharing this project at various other wonderful blogs, including the following:
