MONTEREY - March **PREORDER**
This month's colorway inspiration is
the humpback whale!
These massive creatures the size of buses are known for launching their bodies completely out of the water. They migrate thousands of miles every year, and pass through Monterey with their calves on their way to the warm Costa Rican waters in the winter. Their knobby and colorful markings make them easy to identify as individuals that can be tracked throughout their lifetimes.
Humpback whales were hunted to near extinction before a 1966 hunting moratorium, and have since made great strides in recovery. Today they are threatened by entanglement from fishing gear and ship strikes; both can be fatal. Ocean noise from ships, sonar and drilling can cause whales to be driven away from their habitats and can sometimes even to drive some to strand on beaches. NOAA's goal is to help them recover to 60% of their original population size before the days of commercial hunting. Wonderful laws and regulations are being managed to help protect these amazing creatures!
You can support the whales by supporting a marine sanctuary and a slew of other things.

How it Works
A new monthly release on your terms! Preorder is open until the 15th of each month. Preorder pricing is 10% off our standard pricing. We choose an inspiration photo, and you choose one of our available yarn bases... or get a sock kit! And unlike a yarn club, you can order more than one skein.
We dye your yarn, then post the new colorway before it ships. If you don't love it, exchange your preorder for store credit before it even ships out!
More happiness- zero waste!
Here's the preorder schedule:
- Preorder is available until the 15th of each month.
- Colorway released by the 21st of each month.
- Preorders ship between the 22nd and the last day of each month.
Please know the colorway will be an interpretation of the photo, and not color-matched!
