Yellow Border Leicester 4ply yarn Sandsend
96 in stock
Sandsend, one of our latest colours, not quite yellow, not quite mustard, is absolutely stunning. It evokes memories of days at the beach long gone. It catches the eye immediately and holds it.
North of Whitby, at the end of a long sandy beach, Sandsend is a small fishing village in a little bay that has formed where two streams flow from the North Yorkshire Moors into the sea. Located against steep cliffs at one end, with the sands running towards Whitby at the other, Sandsend is one of the most picturesque villages on the North Yorkshire coast. The ruins of Whitby Abbey are visible in the distance and at one time Alum workers lived in some of the cottages.
The colours of the lovely sands of Sandsend change with the light and the sea conditions but our soft, gentle yellow gives an inkling of how they can look.
