Elenya Alpaca Hartney Bay Sandpiper

$20.00

Hartney Bay Sandpiper was created for our annual Shorebird Festival to celebrate the magnificent flocks of sandpipers that migrate through our region each year.  Golden yellow/orange and brown are the feathers, the white with dots of color represents their flecked chest on a white feather backbround, and the soft blue is the backdrop of the birdwatchers dream day of a lovely clear blue spring sky.  The yarn colors are drawn from the sandpiper artwork and photography of Erin Cooper, Milo Burcham,  Jon Cornforth, and Arthur Morris.
