This colorway is 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.
