"Dead Man's Fingers" is named for a seaweed that grows off the Maine coast. It is a deep, olivey green and dark green. Dead Man's Fingers grow in the shape of a hand and are as creepy as the name sounds. The yarn's not creepy, though - it's actually quite lovely! The seaweed has other aliases, including "Oyster Thief" and "Velvet Fingers" (in case you'd like to re-name your yarn once you get it).
