Imagine taking a quiet walk on the beach. There is a gentle breeze and the soft movement of the waves lapping at your feet. You come across a beautiful, perfect seashell and decide to take it home to add to your collection.
Seashell is a lovely subtle soft colorway that has silver, gold, copper, gray, very light green, and a soft sea blue. I included a photo of the type of seashell I had in mind when I made the yarn.
I dyed this colorway on Stained Glass Sock, which is a soft and squishy 2-ply yarn made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon. The thing that makes Stained Glass Sock uniquely wonderful is that one ply is made of white wool while the other alternates between black and white, so when I dye the yarn, it looks like leaded stained glass. Each 100 gram skein has 400 yards.

Seashell would look great with Sage, Chocolate, Forest Green, The Hands of the King, Annunciation Blue, Monet's Water Lilies, and Enchanted Forest.
