The waves roared against the sand, but softly as the tide was out quite far. Gulls cried overhead and the sea was just a deeper color of the aqua blue sky. The sun hung high, slipping from center, a yellow sphere that shimmered. Children squealed and ran through the tall, dry, yellow green grass that topped the rounded dunes.
Enjoy Beachy Keen - an irresistably soft handspun yarn in surprisingly beautiful colors.
A turquoise that's nearly sky blue, streaked with sandy tan, sunny yellow, and a bit of green, this colorway is multidimesnsional and very soft. Mo dyed this 100% merino wool combed top using the three kettle method. She used food safe dyes and professional acid dyes, dyeing the braid sky blue and adding brown and yellow. She handspun this thick and thin, single ply yarn on an Ashford Traditional wheel. After spinning, she set the twist and allowed the yarn to bloom. This yarn is lofty and next to skin soft with a 21 micron count.

This yarn is ready to ship - the skein in the photographs is the one I'll be sending your way! Mo has worked hard to take accurate photos and edit for spot on color, but your monitor may display the color differently. Please consider the colors approximate.

This skein has been dyed, spun, and stored in a pet free, smoke free home.
