My kittens are immeasurably important to me, so naming my yarn label after them just made sense. I started calling them "squirrels" pretty much from day one. They were about the size of a squirrel, weighing just over a pound each, and they loved to steal things. like my socks, and "squirrel" them away.
Squirrel Girl Yarns are hand-dyed in small batches with no formulas or dye lots. If you purchase more than one of the "same" color, we recommend you alternate two rows from each skein in your work so the skeins will blend.

Pictured below are Cora (left) and Cami at about 7 weeks old in April 2020. This photo was all it took. I fell in love instantly. I cannot imagine two more perfect cats to come into my life after the loss of my Mewis and my Cecil.
