    The perfect rich, pine-y green.

    All of the National Parks colorways are lovely, but this one is my favorite. Now to find a pattern to do it justice.

    I'm a slacker about leaving reviews. This yarn is just gorgeous -- any color, you can't go wrong. One item ended up being out of stock, but the shop owner contacted me right away, refunded the shipping fee for the inconvenience and offered to substitute in another skein. Wonderful service!!

    Haven't knitted with it yet, but it looks just as lovely in person as it does in the pictures. Shipping was speedy, too!

About

every color has a story.

Hi there, and thanks for visiting my shop! My name is Kera, and I created Campfire Knits because I'm absolutely obsessed with knitting (and coffee, but that's besides the point), and I wanted to expand my creative outlets to dyeing yarn and doing some pattern design.

I've done a lot of traveling over the years, and some of the best memories I have are of the beautiful natural wonders I've seen. I wanted to capture the sights and feelings of these places in my knits, so here we are!

All yarns are hand-dyed by me in small batches in my smoke-free/pet-free home in New England. I use colorfast dyes and rinse thoroughly with a gentle wool wash. At this time, I do not accept requests for custom colors.

If you ever have any questions about my fibers, or are looking for pattern suggestions for your purchase, don't hesitate to ask!

    Hi, I'm Kera! I recently began dyeing yarn after seeking a new creative outlet, and I fell in love with the process. My colors are mostly inspired by the natural beauty I've seen in some of my travels.

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

I do not accept custom color requests or designs at this time.

I don't see any dye lots. How do I know if my yarn will match?

Due to the nature of my dye process, all skeins will vary differently from one another; even the ones that are in the same color way will have some variance from skein to skein! So there are no dye lots, but I try to ensure that each batch I create are as close to one another as possible!

For best results while knitting larger items, I suggest alternating skeins every couple of rows.

How do I care for my yarns/knitwear?

Most of my yarns are superwash, meaning they can safely be used in a washing machine with cold water on a gentle cycle. But for best results, I suggest lightly hand-washing with cool water and a delicate soap. In all cases, you should lay items flat to dry.
