Sirena of The Backcountry Knitter was inspired by a photo of a Portuguese man o’ war taken at the Gulf Islands National Seashore, in the “coastal backcountry” of Mississippi, for her installment of the Knitting Our National Parks Series, which is going into its sixth year! There are two “sting-free” colorways — the specked Hydrozoa and the semisolid Beach Shadow — as part of this collection and they are dyed on two bases, plus a sock set.
The yarn is available to preorder exclusively on Indie Untangled until June 28 and it will ship at the end of July. As always, your stashing benefits a good cause: 10% of all sales will be divided between the National Park Foundation and the Native American Rights Fund.
