The Yarn

To celebrate White Bear Moccasins we wanted a colorway with natural leather colors plus a bit of natural pop, hence the creamy watery blue/greens. This yarn is a super soft, single ply thick and thin 100% Superwash Merino with 240 yards/100 grams.


 I think this yarn would be the perfect shawl yarn and you could do something simple like Joji's Hipster Shawl, Boneyard Shawl by Stephen West or Tassels in the Sky by Vincent Villapando. I also think doing embracing the moccasin theme here and doing some slippers would be very cool in this yarn! Happy Feet Booties by Purl Soho, Woodland Loafers Light by Claire Slade, or Simple House Slippers by Simone Alexandra would really let this yarn shine.


With every month in the Indigenous Collective you can order more of the colorway in the listing below. Please know the preorder will end June 1st and ship mid June.
