Name: Highlander

Color: Hawthorne Pink

Sign: Libra

Yardage: 145


"I'm just your typical outdoorsy lass looking for that special crafter to bring out the best in me!"

Perfect Match:

"I'm a very easy to please yarn that works in all sorts of projects. I'm looking for someone who is fearless and loves working with ruggedly adorable yarns like me! :p I work up best on 7's to 10's for you knitters out there and am a snuggly blend that makes sweet sweaters and awesome accessories!"

Perfect Date:

"While I may come in girly colors, I'm no girly-girl! Take me hiking, camping, or rock climbing. I also love a good road trip and any adventure is good enough for me!"


"Braveheart is the best movie ever. End of story. I love pretty much anything on the Discovery Channel and am totally addicted to The Deadliest Catch. I love reading anything by Sir Walter Scott and love Scottish and Irish pop and punk music like Snow Patrol, The Coors, Flogging Molly and the Dropkick Murphy's. And I might have an Enya CD or two. You know- for chill time."

Anything Else?

"I can do a great Sean Connery impersonation and make a mean Shepherd's pie!"

Single Skeins: Fino

Do you feel like you're missing something in your life? Is wool or cotton just not enough for you anymore? Do you need your yarn to be as passionate as you are? Well, Fiber Crafters, you have come to the right place! Welcome to Single Skeins, the website devoted to matching you to the alpaca yarn of your dreams! Name: Fino
Color: Silver Belle
Sign: Aquarius
Yardage: 875

"Hello there, my name is Fino. I don't normally do this sort of thing, but I thought I'd give it a try! A lot of people find me intimidating since I'm a know...lacey, but once you get past the whole little gauge thing, I think you'll like me! I'm a silk/baby alpaca blend and I enjoy everything from stockinette stitch to mind-bending lace patterns."

Perfect Match:
"I'm really not very picky- I understand I'm a little higher maintenance than perhaps a more experienced fiber crafter? I do really well with shawls and scarves and would love to wrap myself around you to keep you warm this winter!"

Perfect Date:
"I love to be spoiled! Take me out to dinner and then an Opera or the Symphony- I really shine on a fancy night out!"

"I love a good costume drama, whether it's Jane Austen or Shakespeare. There's just something so magical about the vast English countryside, quaint manor life, and the cliffs of Dover. Some of my favorites include Jane Austen's Ply & Prejudice and Silk & Sensibility. I quite enjoy classical music and as I mentioned before, I adore opera. There is nothing quite knitting along with a good aria."

Anything else?
"Once on Spring Break in Cabo, I won a poolside competition for "Best Plies!"
