Ziggy Stardust was created for the fourth shipment of Martina Behm's 2017 Strickmich! Club. It was a real honor to get to be present at the live unveiling of the Lightning pattern at Martina's cast on event in Damsdorf, Germany, and to introduce this colorway to everyone! Ziggy Stardust features bright, bold colors: the background is primarily shades of green, turquoise, and blue, punctuated with pops of magenta and orange.
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).
