When yarn evokes wistful desires and nostalgic moments of our fondest childhood moments. Hand-painted colours with bits of your favourite leftovers or unicorn tails bring those memories back to life. Saltwater Taffy is a shallow asymmetrical triangle, knit sideways on the bias. Knit it in colours that allow you to reminisce.
