One of my first New York City summer experiences was the Coney Island Mermaid Parade and it was by far one of my favourite experiences in NYC. The Mermaid Parade is an annual parade held at Coney Island. It embodies the fun, creative energy of NYC that we don’t always see. A sea of people dressed as Mer-people in blues, greens, lots of neon and plenty of homemade costumes, all in the name of fun.
This fun, creative spirit is what inspired our limited release for the summer. Mermaid Parade, named after the parade itself, is a pastel sage speckled with pops of neon yellow and pink and deep green. It will be available on our Fingering Single and Mohair Silk bases.
Mermaid Parade will go live in The Wandering Flock Etsy shop on Friday, May 27 at 12 noon Eastern.
