Why are some seashells colorful? I’ve asked myself that for many years. A little digging through science journals tells me that the color comes from a seashell’s environment—so it’s either taken out of the water or from what they eat.
We know seashells’ colors come from their environment. But scientists don’t know yet how the colors get spread around, creating brilliant patterns.

You, too, can create your own mineral fade just like seashells by gathering the colors from your own environment! Use up leftover yarns to create a unique ombre fade hat.
