Ferryboat Mitts - Local Color Cascara Merino Version

Ferryboat Mitts - Local Color Cascara Merino Version

"The yarn loves this ribbing."

These handsome mitts suit men and women alike. Perfect for a foggy morning commute across Puget Sound. Or keyboarding with the thermostat down. Or texting. Or knitting out of doors.

This version is knit in soft, light, three-ply merino wool dyed with with plants grown or foraged by the Bainbridge Island artists at Local Color Fiber Studio. Our sample colorway is Madder Dark, but imagine Grape Skin? Or Red Cabbage, which turns the yarn a beautiful pale grey - just like that foggy morning commute! It doesn't get more local than this! (Read more about this unique yarn here.)
