Alaskan Totem Pole is a two skein set with inspiration coming from it’s name sake. The wonderful Medora Girls, which are yarn friends of mine, took this photo during their last trip to Alaska. The vibrant colors on the totem pole inspired the variegated skein. It’s a wonderful combination of reds, blues, and yellows. Though these may be simple primary colors, the skein is anything but boring and primary. The second skein is a rich brown, showcasing the wood tones that stories are carved on. This set could be used together in one project or separately.

Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
