On the northwestern side of Ireland is the Connemara National Park. It is sometimes considered the highlands of the Republic of Ireland. It’s full of lochs, mountains, roaming sheep, and rugged coastlines. I captured this photo on my way to Kylemore Abbey; the mist of a recent brief rain was just covering the mountains with the sun trying to poke through.
This tonal yarn color is full soft tans and subtle green shades with a few speckles scattered throughout, bringing to mind the wild grasses and reeds of a mountain meadow. I can picture this colorway worked up into a cowl or scarf. Now available on fingering weight!

Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
