What’s New at Carodan Farm?

Developing Chincoteague Colors!

We did not know it would be so much fun to dye yarns. But developing the Chincoteague Colors has been a labor of love. So many times Dan and I would drive across the causeway onto the Island, and I would say, just look at those colors – the greens, blues of the water the sky. Just incredible. It took me a while to realize that I could actual capture the colors in our yarns.

And of course the colors are not as vivid in this photo as in real life. Each colorway represents a place, flower, bird, something on either Assateague or Chincoteague Island.

In the photo above, starting at 3 o’clock,┬áthere is Conch Beauty, Trumpet Flower, Marsh Rose, Low Tide Flats, Cattails, Reed Grass, Chincoteague Waters, Dragonfly, Island Bluets, Assateague Shadow, Queens Sound, Storm at Sunset. And actually there are some colors not pictured. We are dyeing them in the fingering wt and DK wt with all of it being 100% merino superwash.

We have several shawl patterns being published soon on Ravelry. So keep an eye out for the first one, Echoes of Chincoteague.

    The colors are beautiful! I can’t wait to see them in person. I know you’ll be bringing them to Graves Mountain, right? I’m sure everyone will want them.
