For her installment of the Indie Untangled Knitting Our National Parks series, Dawn of Barker Wool was inspired by an image of sockeye salmon swimming by Brooks Falls in Alaska’s Katmai National Park & Preserve. Sockeye will be dyed on Barker Wool’s BFL Fingering base, which is 100% Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester wool. The long repeats of crimson and plum can be manipulated in one of Dawn’s many assigned pooling patterns, including shawls and sweaters. The skeins are pictured Dawn’s Roam shawl, which features a tiny bobble stitch reminiscent of roaming across fields of tiny flowers.
