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.
We love the texture of this 3-ply 100% Superwash Merino, produced entirely in the United States. It is round, bouncy, and knits into beautifully defined and balanced stitches. The yarn is plied firmly to add durability to the fiber's softness, and the DK weight will be warm, but not too heavy or bulky in garments and accessories.
