Happy Birthday, Babs! 2018's special colorway, Birthday Jubilee, is a cheerful explosion of color inspired by an exuberant wrapping paper pattern.
This colorway is highly variable. If you need more than one skein for your project, we will do our best to visually match them. For even results, you must alternate skeins. If you'd prefer darker or lighter skeins (or more blue or pink, etc), please make a note on your order when you check out.
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.
Big and luxurious, Big Silk combines the bounce and warmth of Merino wool with the shine and drape of cultivated silk. The generous yardage means Big Silk is great for big cowls, shawls, and scarves - one skein is enough for most worsted-weight accessory projects. Big Silk is a web exclusive yarn and does not travel with us to shows.
