Named for Ansel Adams' iconic black and white photography style. Black dots and dashes appear over the natural undyed cream of the yarn. Sometimes Ansel has lots of black, sometimes very little.
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.
Hot Shot is a fine and durable merino-nylon blend sock yarn. We love it for its slight sheen, smooth feel, and ability to take color brilliantly. The round 3-ply construction makes textured stitches pop.
