Originally created for the Surprise shipment of the 2013 Miss Babs Knitting Tour, Surpriza features shades of cream, taupe and chocolate, with purple that varies from Concord grape to soft pink.
This colorway can be highly variable, so feel free to give us a call for a current description of what we have, or if you have any questions about the color.
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.
As of 2021, we have a new version of Caroline that we love just as much as the original! Caroline is lusciously soft, blending super fine merino wool with cashmere and nylon. The new version has a 3-ply construction, making it sleeker and softer in the hand with less halo for greater stitch definition. You’ll love Caroline in textured or lacy accessories like shawls, cowls, hand warmers, and hats (but Caroline is not suitable for socks).
