This colorway is based on one of my favorite books of all time.  This is the story of a young girl who grew up near the swamp and learned to enjoy all the beauty of the place.  It is a book I love to re-read every spring.  This colorway is a lovely natural color.  It is a tan base with olive green speckles and splashes of nudish- peach color and a few yellow speckles.

Fingering Weight:
One of my favorite bases: 80/20 Superwash Merino/ nylon. The extra little bit of Merino makes this a softer, slightly plumper fingering weight yarn. 400 yards for 100 grams

I now have another fingering weight option. This is a 75/25 Superwash Merino/ nylon. A little bit stronger from the more nylon. This would be a wonderful base for socks! 100 grams with 463 yards and a 4 ply, so a little more rounded.


Sport Weight yarn: This yarn is a 80/20% Superwash Merino and nylon, it is soft for next to skin wear. A  yarn with great stitch definition.  The skein is 100 grams and 328 yards. A skein would be enough for a hat, mittens, fingerless gloves, slippers, you could even make a pair of socks!

This yarn is a 100% Superwash Merino wool. A DK weight yarn, it is soft for next to skin wear. A yarn with great stitch definition. The skein is 100 grams and 231 yards.


Worsted Weight: This yarn is a 100% superwash Merino wool. A worsted weight yarn, it is soft for next to skin wear. A yarn with great stitch definition. The skein is 100 grams and 218 yards. This is a popular yarn for hats and scarves but would also make a warm and squishy sweater.
