Apollo: KittyBea by the Sea | Hand-Dyed Knitting Crochet Yarn | Superwash Merino Nylon Lurex
KittyBea, Yarns by the Sea is a new Collection of coastal inspired colorways. Inspiration is taken from scenic beaches, coastal landmarks & towns, and local wildlife- including gorgeous shells found whilst beachcombing and bright spots to visit. The first location of inspiration is (naturally): Florida!
Apollo is a unique yarn. The Extrafine Merino is fluffy and soft, with added strength from Nylon. The Lurex offers a striking, but subtle sparkle that is perfectly plied with the yarn. It has a light texture and gives lovely drape at the right gauge. Apollo is perfect for garments, accessories, and even socks.
