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.
Killington is a lofty DK weight blend of Polwarth wool and Tussah silk. It has a subtle sheen, a slightly crisp hand, and excellent yardage. We love Killington for all sorts of sweaters and big squishy shawls and wraps.
