RED in Tweedy Toad from our Toad Hollow Fairy Tale collection, Little Red Riding Hood, Toad Hollow Yarns

$ 30.00

In 2020, our yarn focus was Fairy Tales. First on the list is Red Riding Hood - the story of a young girl who is tricked by a wolf into giving her the location of her grandmother’s house and mayhem ensues. In some versions, both the grandmother and Red Riding Hood are eaten by the wolf, then saved by the huntsman. In others, there is no saving - they are just eaten. We prefer Red from “The Girl in Red” by Christina Henry who saves herself.

This listing is for the color RED, a deep rich red that is our idea of the perfect “hood” color. Please swipe over to see Red in the Highland base as it is not as vibrant as the other bases.

Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.


Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.
