September 2021 | Inspired by Ellie, Evolutionary Biologist at the University of California at Los Angeles
Ellie is an Evolutionary Biologist who has a background in biology, environmental studies, and ecology, evolution, and conservation biology. She has specialized in hummingbird plumage variation and the urban evolution, behavior, and adaptation in Dark-eyed Juncos! Growing up watching Animal Planet and Nat-Geo, she was inspired by Jane Goodall to "do something to help the plight of biodiversity decline." Ellie's advice to young girls interested in STEM: "The degree doesn't make the scientist, the curiosity does." What impactful words! 🤎
Since Ellie is a vegan, I am offering a vegan-friendly option for this month's colorway! Evolutionary Biologist is being offered on a limited run of Fett Cotton, a 100% Pima cotton base with 437yd/100g.
Each skein of hand-dyed yarn is designed with precision and care, but variations among individual skeins may vary.
