Carys BFL Yarn . . Three Mile Bay

$20.00

Inspired by Susan Ogle's delightful watercolor "Three Mile Bay", depicting the view out into Orca Inlet towards Hawkins Island, this yarn has the lovely array of  teals, blues, aquas and greens as seen in early spring with its lingering snow and emerging new growth.  Susan is a resident fine artist and co-owner of Orca Book and Sound, Cordova's own local bookstore.  I love how this colorway knits up and creates a lovely watercolor wash in knit, crochet, and woven pieces, as well as in handspun yarn in the hand dyed fiber also available in this colorway.
