Point Lobos State Natural Reserve is called the crown jewel of California's state park system. Stunning unobstructed views, tide pools, kelp forests, and home to the endangered and rare Monterey Cypress. Point Lobos translates to Point Wolf. This derives from the barking sea lions that Spanish colonists called Lobos Marinos- or Sea Wolves. Today the sea lions still thrive here along with countless other species (like sea otters!) thanks to the 9,907 acres of protected underwater area. Once a place of substantial whale hunting, mining, abalone harvesting, and later secret military operation during WWII, Point Lobos is now a transformed refuge of conservation. More than 90% of the reserve is actually underwater as a Marine Protected Area, a powerful tool in protecting and restoring ocean biodiversity. The clear water, grand underwater topography and abundant sea life also makes this place world famous for scuba diving. We hope you love this place as much as we do!

By demand, now offering preorder shawl kits in addition to sock kits! If you'd like a coordinating full skein instead of a miniskein, you can now order this as a shawl kit!
This month we've also released our brand new Monterey Buttons! Select them as an add-on, and they will ship with your preorder.
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 or shawl kit that includes a coordinating colorway! 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 around 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!
If we have extra skeins, they'll be available at full retail price after the pre-order! This is a limited run. We don't plan on making more.
Color accuracy!We do our best to accurately represent colors both with photos and written descriptions. Colorways vary by skein & dye lot due to the nature of hand-dyed yarn, and also by screen display settings.
