Firekeeper's Daughter

Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley


Firekeeper's Daughter by Angeline Boulley is one of our favorite books here at FDF!

"Firekeeper's Daughter: As a biracial, unenrolled tribal member and the product of a scandal, Daunis Fontaine has never quite fit in—both in her hometown and on the nearby Ojibwe reservation. When her family is struck by tragedy, Daunis puts her dreams on hold to care for her fragile mother. The only bright spot is meeting Jamie, the charming new recruit on her brother’s hockey team. After Daunis witnesses a shocking murder that thrusts her into a criminal investigation, she agrees to go undercover. But the deceptions—and deaths—keep piling up and soon the threat strikes too close to home. How far will she go to protect her community if it means tearing apart the only world she’s ever known?"

The Yarn


We took inspiration from the gorgeous colors on the Firekeeper's Daughter book cover for this month. We dyed it up on our super soft and squishy Craggy Tweed base. Craggy Tweed is 85% SW Merino wool and 15% NEP and has 231 yards/100g. We love this yarn for hats, cowls, and sweaters. The NEP pieces of fiber give an extra deminsion to your project!


This month's yarn pairs perfectly with some of our favorite Craggy Tweed colors. This would be perfect for a colorwork yoke sweater!

Slide 1: Paired with Paul Newman Slide 2: Paired with Madmartigan Slide 3: Paired with Olive Oyl Slide 4: Paired with Castle Rock Slide 5: Paired with Napi Slide 6: Paired with Winter Wolf

With every month in the Indigenous Collective you can order more of the colorway in the listing below. Please know that additional yarn will be a preorder, which will end October 6th and will ship mid October.

  • This is my 1st month as a member. I wish I would’ve known about the portal to preorder sooner as this yarn is gorgeous!
    I want to order the book, does Farmers Daughter carry that as well?

  • I love the book, its cover and the yarn. The yarn is already becoming part of the Heirloom Quilt cardigan by Kathryn Seeburger.
