Iolite, named for the blue-violet gem, features shifting shades of blues and purples in varying proportions but similar depth throughout the skein.
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. If you don't need the full 1750-yard skein of Katahdin, these 600 yard skeins might be the perfect choice! Katahdin 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.
