We've had our exclusive Mountain Colors' Alpaca Blend yarn for a few years now, but when we saw the similar sport weight yarn we had to add it to our collection. We named it Fever River Lite and created four new colorways, also inspired by Game of Thrones.

Terrible name or not, the name holds a historic charm and many locals continue to call it the Fever River. A quick look through the phone book today still shows a number of businesses and organizations named Fever River. In the early 1990s the U.S. Board on Geographical Names proposed changing the name back to the Fever River, but the proposal was rejected and the name Galena River officially remained. Wisconsin, however, proposed and passed a state bill to rename the Galena river north of the Wisconsin state line back to Fever River.
Fever River Lite yarn, which will not make you feverish or sick. Although you may call into work sick just so that you can spend an uninterrupted day at home knitting with this gorgeous blend of soft merino and alpaca!
The exclusive yarn is available in four Thrones-inspired colors: Dragon Blood, Little Lion, Green Dragon and Ice Wall. And, yes, we also have Thrones-inspired patterns to go along with the new yarn:
- The Dragon Tooth Shawlette features a rhythmic all-over tooth-like texture that's simple to knit and gorgeous in the Dragon Blood colorway.
- The Lion's Mane Cowl is full of cables, with more twists than the Game of Thrones plot! Fit for any mighty house in Westeros, the brown, yellow and gray of the Little Lion colorway will remind you of Tyrion Lannister's tresses.
- More to Come! Stay tuned to see what interesting patterns Amy has come up with for our two remaining colors, Dragon Green and Ice Wall!
