I made an Autism yarn colorway suggestion
I emailed Blue Moon Fiber Arts and asked if they would consider making a variegated colorway that captures the colors of the Autism Ribbon : red, blue, teal green and gold. Their "Farmhouse" is a near match.

And Tina Newton responded. She said she would certainly keep it in mind.

Thank you for the suggestion. I hope they do it. I would buy several skeins to make things for the people that work with my 2 boys with autism.

My DS is 7yrs old and autistic. I really like the Bambu yarn from Blue Moon and want to try their Geisha yarn; I'd like to make myself a shawl or scarf with those colors. That was my reasoning for making the request.
