Sweatermaker Colors

Sweatermaker Colors

Fibre artist Judy Maclean of Sweatermaker Yarns has been spinning and dyeing yarns for over 30 years. She curates a fabulous selection of fibres, including silk, cashmere, kid mohair, BFL, merino, and camel.

Every skein is a unique piece of painted art. Judy's colour mixes are vibrant, pleasing, and unique.

In order to organize the knitting kits, and to differentiate between one color grouping and another, I name the colors here on Tricksy Knitter. The color names are sometimes literal, sometimes playful, sometimes a little bananas. But overall, I choose names that represent (to me, anyways) the spirit of the yarn. I've never seen a baby unicorn for example, but it feels like a good name for this yarn.

The image above shows an overview of the Sweatermaker colors available on the Tricksy Knitter menu right now.

(Want to shop Sweatermaker Yarns in person? Sweatermaker is available in a few places, here in Canada: We carry 3 of her yarns here on Tricksy Knitter. Uptown Yarns in Courtenay and Knotty by Nature in Victoria stock a variety. And, if you are near Comox in the summer, there is usually a fresh supply at the Filberg Festival. But they don't use the names that I do!)
