Saltwater is the comfort of home in an all wool, 3 ply, sport weight yarn.
Whidbey Island, where this yarn was made, is surrounded by the salty waters of the Puget Sound. Standing on the beach closest to our home I can see the shores of the Olympic Penninsula stretching up from the south. And reaching down from the north is Vancouver Island, almost completing the embrace, but leaving a gap between the two arms of land where the Salish Sea carries our tides directly out to the Pacific Ocean. The comfort of home, for us, feels like a walk on the beach, the familiar spray of saltwater carried on a cold wind, all the while snuggly wrapped in soft, handknit wool.

Ordered one of each color in the rainbow- so gorgeous! I am holding together with a worsted complementary or similar color and knitting up a muted rainbow Garter Squish blanket by Stephen West. A cozy piece for our mountain getaway.
