This colorway comes straight out of our Monday morning staff meeting: coffee, laptops, and note-taking. Tones of black and silver gray over cream join coffee-stain brown and random splatters of teal and green. This colorway may also include occasional red spots on some of the skeins and bases, which are considered part of the colorway.
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. This colorway is also 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.
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.
