The Colourway

Sand Pebble explores the colours of the shoreline -- from gray rocks to tawny sand, with streaks of rich copper, pine greens, and deep purples.  When knit or crocheted, the colours will flow and blend together to create a stunning, almost-pointillist effect.

Clean, clear blue-turquoise that fades away into crisp white, and brings all the joy of wandering barefoot down the beach, stopping to collect little treasures of water-worn Beach Glass along the way.


Ordering details

  • Order as many skeins as you like, and we will get them in the dyepots for you! Because this is a custom process, please allow up to 4-6 weeks for your order to be ready (though we aim for much faster than that)
  • These skeins will be remain available to order for two weeks. The listing will be marked as sold out at 12.01am (EST) on  Aug 5 2015.
  • Very Important Stuff: All hand-dyed yarns can vary between and within dyelots and their true beauty is the individuality in every skein.  Please be sure to order enough yarn for your project, to reduce the chance of differences between your skeins.  If you'd prefer to reduce any variation in your project, we recommend alternating skeins every two rows in your project. Please remember that our photos are as accurate as possible, but the colours you see also depend on your computer monitor's settings. Where there are multiple skeins pictured, each is sold separately.
