NEW! Coquina DK: Bettye's Beach Blanket Fade Kits | Superwash Merino Wool & Cotton Yarn | Hand-Dyed Skeins | KittyBea by the Sea
KittyBea, by the Sea is a new Collection of coastal inspired colorways. Inspiration is taken from scenic beaches, coastal landmarks, and local wildlife- including gorgeous shells found whilst beachcombing. The first location of inspiration is (naturally): Florida!
Coquina DK is the newest addition to KittyBea. This Superwash Merino Wool and Cotton blend is lightweight, perfect for our coastal climate, and a three-season yarn everywhere else. This super soft blend works for garments and accessories alike and is perfect for knitting or crochet baby items. This blend is also available as a Fingering/Sock weight 4ply (Coquina, coming soon).

Description of Colorways
Bettye's Beach: Bare yarn with areas/pools of light to deep sand and aquas.
Sea Glass: Pools of aqua, green and powder blue, with accents and speckles of sapphire.
Lagoon: Pools of turquoise and green with speckles/accents of blue-violet and purple.
Bettye's Blue: Tonally variegated with areas of sapphire turning towards brighter blue.
This yarn base is half cotton and cotton doesn't hold the dyes used for wool. The result is a less intense, more serene version of these colorways.
Bettye's Beach Fade is also available as a 4 skein shawl kit, on KittyBea Sanibel, HERE.
Instructions for Care
Hand wash or gentle machine on cold, with gentle detergent or wool wash only, dry flat.
We recommend hand-washing all of our products (no matter what the manufacturer says) with a gentle wash. Eucalan and Soak are two of our favorites. This will extend the life of your yarn and projects!
