Originally created for the Surprise shipment of the 2013 Miss Babs Knitting Tour, Surpriza features shades of cream, taupe and chocolate, with purple that varies from Concord grape to soft pink.
This colorway can be 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.
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 light fingering weight yarn is perfect for fine gauge sweaters and large shawls. Katahdin weighs in at 1750 yards and 15.5 ounces, making it our largest skein to date. It can be knit at a heavy laceweight or light fingering gauge and is 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool. BFL is a perfect canvas for Babs’ colors, giving the yarn a rich depth and slightly glossy finish.
