Why is Skein Queen’s logo a hummingbird?

The iconic hummingbird is present on all Skein Queen branded packaging. It became part of the logo after the team were inspired by the brilliant and dazzling colours of a hummingbird’s plumage. This can appear to change colour when viewed from different angles. The creature is also traditionally associated with unique movement and a high level of energy.
