Chincoteague Colors


If you're like me, when you travel you search out the yarn shops. That's what inspired us to start dyeing yarn. Folks would come into the shop asking if there were anything local and there wasn't at that time.

Now we have our Chincoteague Colors capturing the colors of Chincoteague and Assateague Islands, special yarns dyed for a special place.

We dye these yarns right here on the Island with colors to represent birds, places, things we see as we bike and walk the Island. We hope they will remind you of a day you spent here with us or perhaps would like to spend on an island.

NEW YARN...NEW YARN...NEW YARN

We are so excited about our new yarn, Surf Silk. It is a fingering wt yarn combining merino wool with the luxury of silk and cashmere. It just flows through your hands like liquid. You can see why the words finest and strongest are associated with the silk fiber. And to put the Surf Silk yarn over the top, there’s a touch of cashmere for softness. Pure luxury.

We will be introducing this yarn at the MD Sheep & Wool Show the first weekend in May. Can’t wait to see what people think of it. We did already show it to our SoXperience Retreat participants and they grabbed it up. We’ll have a pair of socks (what a delight on your feet), and a lace scarf to show you how it works up.

We have dyed it in the Chincoteague Colors. It is a blend of 70% merino wool, 20% silk and 10% cashmere. You’ll love it! We also have priced it the same as our other silk blend yarns at $24.95/skein and each skein has plenty of yardage – 437yds.

Surf Silk is in stock now.
