Rufous Hummingbird - Fiber

Write a Review

Rufous Hummingbirds (Selasphorus rufus) are named for their warm orange and reddish coloring and are one of the most aggressive species of hummingbird, not afraid to take on other hummingbirds twice their size in order to chase them away from feeders. They have a large migration pattern that spans the entire west coast of the US, breeding in the summertime in the Pacific Northwest and wintering in Mexico and Central America.

Colorway repeatability: Hypothesis


Mad science colorways are one of a kind (OOAK), unique, and may never appear again exactly as you see them now. Everything with Experiment or OOAK in the name is a non-repeatable Mad Science colorway.

Hypothesis colorways are somewhat repeatable but can vary quite a bit from batch to batch. Colorways I'm tweaking and refining are Hypothesis colorways, as are some colorways that have recipes but are too variable to be considered Theories, such as Nebula colorways.

Theory colorways are dialed-in recipes that are as repeatable as they come here at EFW. Most of the Elements Collection will end up as Theory colorways as they are developed and pass through testing.


I only include pictures that I think accurately represent the colors of the fiber, but differences in computer monitors mean my photos may not be 100% accurate. I accept returns of items in original condition within 30 days of purchase; see the Shipping & Returns page for more information.
