Mother Earth is a cool-toned colorway that starts with a soft blue-gray and adds leafy yellow greens and rich teal blue speckles.
This yarn is speckled: it has a tonal-colored background shade peppered with small dark specks and spots of dye. Each skein is different in terms of speckle distribution and placement. We will do our best to choose multiple skeins that coordinate well.
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!
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).
