Our Bird yarn is named after the beautiful and prestigious Bird Key, which is a small island between the Sarasota mainland and St. Armand's Key. It earned its name because of the various waterfowl that was known to flock to this small key. Bird Key is also well-known for its notable celebrity residents.
