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.

This is just a note for those who have not been to our shop on Chincoteague and see we have a small shop with Dan and myself running it. When it comes to dyeing the yarn, itís still a small operation with just Dan & myself. I say all this to help you understand why it may appear that our inventory is very low on some colorways. If the colorway you would like is not available or not available in the amount you need, please email us and we will see about putting your colorway in our dyeing schedule. Thank you so much for your business. It means a lot. Caroline & Dan.
