It's also hilarious that they shop still only gives you example sweater amounts for a female sweater size M... that'll help those manly men!

@Virelai What? Which part? is this about the colors?

fragile Masculinity, fibrecrafts 

@Juju @Virelai It's about the whole "Scratchy wool for manly men in manly man colours (that women can like too, hihi)" thing.

@lilletale @Juju yeaah. You gotta have it rustic! Soft yarn is for girls or something like that.
And apparently they don't need more than 4 colors.

@Virelai "typical male colors"? what does that even MEAN

fragile Masculinity, fibrecrafts 

@jgarfink BLAND AND unexciting apparently. And no overwhelming color selection. One of their other yarn lines (also rustic wool by the way) has 64 colorways... I have zero idea who would chose that "wool for men" stuff over their original lines....

@Virelai I… what? *Baffled*

fragile Masculinity, fibrecrafts 

@pilum you and me both!

@Virelai Oh my, I can finally by wool "for men" lol

I guess I better throw out all of those "feminine" wool sweaters I have!

@IanJHill YOU BETTER! Can't be a real man without manly yarn!!

@Virelai I'm finally able to put my finger on it. This yarn producer is giving me Drops vibes.

@Virelai Small brain: Buying products that are branded For Men™

Galaxy brain: Being so over the gender binary that you buy products that are Not Only For Men™

@miramarco lol yes... that branding is really something... like they know it doesn't make sense to make yarn only for men... but instead of just not doing it, they do this shit...
