Gauge Yarns is proud to introduce Whidbey, the first in our line of Pacific North West inspired yarns! Inspired by Whidbey Island, located about 30 miles north of Seattle, the island forms the northern boundary of Puget Sound. Often referred to as Puget Sound’s Largest Artist’s Colony, Whidbey is home to numerous working artists, writers, and performers. The south end of the Island is a true haven for those who enjoy the fine arts. With its rich flora and fauna, including Deception Pass State Park (the most visited state park in Washington), we wanted to ensure that our Whidbey yarn was just as spectacular and special as its namesake island. We’ve carefully curated the following 8 colorways to inspire your next project:
#01 – PebbleThis dark, off-black colorway was named after the black stones which often have a white vain running through them.
#02 – HeronA warm, majestic grey, much like the wings of our fine feathered friend.
#03 – DriftwoodOff-white as if bleached by the sun, this warm-toned neutral will pair with everything.
#04 – SeaglassEncompasses a range of teal shades which can appear in seaglass.
#05 – PugetA deep, rich navy tonal with warm tones, named after the Sound itself.
#06 – Starfish
Bright and dimensional, this coral tonal gives a nod to one of our favorite sea creatures.
#07 – Loganberry
Embraces all phases of a berry’s ripeness in this lovely tonal: Loganberry.
#08 – Island
This multi encompasses all four tonals: Seaglass, Puget, Starfish, and Loganberry. A perfect colorway to pair with your favorite tonal, or with a complimentary solid like Pebble, Heron, or Driftwood.
