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.

We have 8 yarn collections for you to enjoy.
