The yarnstory:
GG and Shelley share a mutual love and admiration for Amy Small, founder of Knit Collage (and Season 1 Knit Star - the first person to ever say “YES!” to a Knit Stars Masterclass!)


Drawing on her previous experience with Free People, Amy creates bulky art yarns like no other. These are yarns that are delicious to look at, fast and fun to work up, and most of all, mesmerizing to wear!

The yarn: 

Wildflower is one of the most unique fibers to knit with. Providing not only physical texture to a project but visual texture with its printed fabrics, Wildflower is a fiber you cannot miss out on for your next project.

Length: Approx. 60 yards
Yarn Weight: 70g
Gauge: About 2 stitches per inch
Suggested needle size: US 11 - 35 or 8mm - 19mm

Note: A portion of every skein purchased from this Hot Loops Wall goes directly back to Gaye “GG” Glasspie as our acknowledgment and thank-you for her help in curating these Hot Loops Wall yarns and patterns.
