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 featured in KittyBea's latest design: Calusa Cardigan!

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 vs other fibers. 

* Some images may show Coquina (fingering/sock), however, this product listing is for the DK weight (Coquina DK).

This yarn is typically dyed to order, shipping within 5 to 14 days.

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!
