“Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul – and sings the tunes
without the words – and never stops at all.” • Emily Dickenson
Feathers & Tunes was the Day 25 colorway for the 2020 Holiday Pops! Holiday Countdown Collection. We all remember 2020, and it by the end of it, we all needed a bit of hope moving forward. Using this quote as my jumping off point, as well as the little bird featured in the second picture, I knew I’d found my colorway inspiration! While the global landscape of issues has morphed since late 2020, hope is no less needed. I hope Feathers & Tunes will help remind you of the brightness, warmth, and hope possible in the days to come!
Feathers & Tunes features five narrow stripes, four semi-solids in red, dark teal-gray, rust, and medium blue-gray, with a gently speckled stripe of these colors in between every pair.

Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
