Guest:
 Kathy talks with Veronica from Dream in Color about how their line of yarns got started; from the small yarn shop that she and her partner Nancy used to own to the company it is today.

Veronica talks about how they choose their base yarns and colors as well as her favorite yarn, Dream in Color Everlasting Sock and Kathy’s favorite, Dream in Color Starry.

They also discuss the line of Herdy products that they distribute. Did you know that the adorable sheep image is based on the Herdwick breed of Sheep that is so plentiful in the Lake District of England where these products originate?

    I love Dream in Color yarns. I love them better than another currently popular yarn who’s initials are MT. My only carp is that where I live Dream in Color is becoming more difficult to find in LYSs because MT has taken over. I knit for family members who have destroyed in days items made from MT. Meanwhile, the Dream in Color projects I’ve made are wearing like iron. Dream in Color is a great yarn for kids and men. And me, too.
