This project is a family tree of the Southern Resident Orcas.

The southern residents are a group of orcas, or killer whales, that live along the west coast of North America. They live in three separate families, named J pod, K pod, and L pod. 

Each pod has its own skein of yarn, where the colour and width of the stripes represent the age and sex of each individual orca. 

See the full Southern Resident Orcas collection here.

This listing is for one skein of yarn and a leather "J Pod" tag. We do not sell finished knitted items.  

This listing is for yarn only. We do not sell knitted items.
