YPF-Seacolors?

Well they had me at the "Made in Maine" label!

At the smaller arena there was all these colorful yarns just bulging from their hanging place. Interesting colors too. I'd say kind of muted, but rich colors, but then I'm no color explaining expert.

Real exciting huh, brown! But I loves brown!

Seacolors
The yarns are usually solar dyed and seawater is also used in the dyeing process. Thus the brand name I'm sure.

Mine however, is in it's undyed, natural state.

Where it will one day become a vest.

Very "cold" seacolors! You wouldn't find those colors in the ocean that's actually warm. But made in Maine--it makes sense!

Oh, that's pretty! "Just brown", maybe, but a really nice shade. Screams for texture - cables or something.
