Originally created for the Surprise shipment of the 2013 Miss Babs Knitting Tour, Surprise features teal and brown, blending to taupe and yellowish-green over lots of natural cream. The colors have room to blend and play.
This colorway is a Babette: every skein and every batch is a bit different, but Babs has a method of recreating these artistic colorways. The photograph is an example of representative skeins from this colorway; the skein you receive may differ somewhat.
Hot Shot is a fine and durable merino-nylon blend sock yarn. We love it for its slight sheen, smooth feel, and ability to take color brilliantly. The round 3-ply construction makes textured stitches pop.
