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.
We love the texture of this 3-ply 100% Superwash Merino, produced entirely in the United States. Kaweah has a somewhat rustic character, with occasional unevenness in the plies; however, it is round, bouncy, and works up into beautifully defined and balanced stitches.
