MONTEREY - June **PREORDER**
This month's colorway inspiration is
Giant Pacific Octopus!
Magnificent, spry and intelligent solitary creatures! Smart enough to open jars and play with toys, flexible enough to squeeze through tiny spaces. Fully grown they average about 100 pounds and 16 feet across. The largest recorded topped at over 600 pounds and 30 feet across! They have over 2,000 suction cups along their eight tentacles which gives them incredibly strong grip and dazzling senses of taste and smell.
The Giant Pacific Octopus stealthily changes its color by squeezing and stretching special elastic cells to adjust how much pigment is in them. They can camouflage themselves amongst intricate corals and flash vivid colored warnings to threats. If you have a keen eye you might spot this in a tidepool along our coast! They're found in cool and shallow coastal waters (down to depths of a few hundred feet or more) from Southern California all the way up to Alaska.
Although heavily fished as seafood, and commonly used as live reuseable bait by commercial fisherman, their populations are believed to be at healthy numbers.

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 retail price. 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 preorder 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 available until the 15th of each month.
- Colorway created and photo posted by the 21st of month.
- Preorders ship by end of month.
Please know the colorway will be an interpretation of the photo, and not color-matched!

We want you to be happy! Maybe the color isn't the perfect match for your project, or it's just not what you envisioned. Return your purchase for any reason within 2 weeks. Items must be unused, in the original packaging, and in the same condition you received them.
Contact us and we'll email you a return shipping label free of charge! Once we receive your items in original unused condition, we will refund your purchase less the original shipping and handling charge. In other words, we pay the return shipping, while you pay the original shipping.
Color accuracy! Please know we do our best to accurately represent colors both with photos and written descriptions. Colorways may vary by dye lot due to the nature of hand-dyed yarn, and also due to your screen display settings.
