I love the thought that Deirdre puts into naming her colors. For example, she wanted to add a pink/purple/gray to the line and she got the color, but had no clue what to name it. Then she noticed so many Monet paintings that had this sort of color to depict fog and she had her name: Monet's Fog.
The Glen Ellyn Grove color was designed exclusively for String Theory. It was inspired by the mural that was recently completed to brighten up the pedestrian underpass below the train tracks.
This is the workhorse yarn. It can be used for baby items, socks, shawls, you name it. It's soft enough to envelop your feet in knitting socks but strong enough to walk around your house without shoes on. Also, it's machine washable, so no fears of shrinking your work.
