Westerly Sea Blueberries


Blueberry Jam, Blueberry Cobbler, Blueberry Muffins, Blueberry Pancakes...Collecting blueberries in the woods is a Cordova summertime ritual, marked by stained fingers,  jam making sessions, along with yummy blueberry breakfasts and desserts.  Crew members on our fishing boat, the Orion, have always enjoyed jumping ship for a good hike on off days, and returning with a bucket of berries for blueberry/huckleberry pie and such.  Just like the salmon, the berries are a treasured Cordova wild food, and the inspiration for this hazy blue yarn with purple undertones.
