Color inspiration!
Our yarn base names, Super Geek, Whiz-Bang, Prodigy, Maven, Galvanizer reflect the type of people we name colors after. Most of our yarn colorways are named after women who have made a difference in our lives, whether in science, technology, engineering, technology the arts or any other field. We want people to look these women up and learn more about them and what they studied. Many of them were innovators in their own times, often operating in fields of study where women were the exception. From comets and dark matter theory to windshield wipers and cancer-fighting drugs, these women have helped make our world better. We hope that reading about them will inspire you.

Here are some weights and bases she carries!
