Collection: Cape Shoveler

The Cape Shoveler is a dabbling duck native to South Africa. It has a mottled brown body, yellow legs, and metallic blue-green accents on its wings. Our Cape Shoveler colorway pulls together a soft version of these colors with a tan base and golden yellow and teal speckles.

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. If you have any questions about the color, please give us a call or email to ask for a photo - we are always happy to describe our current batch for you to make sure it meets your needs!
