I have had many wonderful adventures in New Jersey, so when I learned there was a Little Known Holiday called Be Nice to Jersey Week (first week in July), I had to dye a colorway for it. These stripes were not a club colorway (I thought the holiday might be too specific), but I couldn't let such a worthy celebration be ignored!

Even stripes of:
Boardwalk (ivory - Skeeball at a boardwalk arcade was a highlight of my youth!)
Old Barney (brick red, Barnegat Light - a lighthouse built in the 1850s)
New Jersey (blue - the Bon Jovi record!)
Cape May Warbler (orange - the World Series of Birding is in NJ, and I've parcipated 3 times)
Pine Barrens (green - there is so much nature in NJ, and it's surprisingly diverse) 

This yarn is ready to ship, but if you'd like to add a 25g mini skein, we can dye one for you! The default color is the New Jersey (blue). The other colors in this yarn are available upon request. Just a leave a note in your cart with which color you'd like. Would you like your yarn cranked into a sock tube so you just have to add heels, toes and cuffs? Check out information on our cranking service!
