Sanibel: Superwash Merino Wool Silk 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!

The only thing better than a merino single ply, is one with silk! The sheen and finish on this yarn is gorgeous! Certainly, it's a way to dress up any project- garment or accessory. Single ply yarn is known for its beautiful drape and the silk only enhances that. It also creates a very smooth, soft finish.
