Nasturtium blossoms make a beautiful and spicy salad addition and also inspire this bold colorway. Shades of orange that range from creamy peach to deep marigold contrast with small splashes of neutral leaf green. The green may vary in intensity, but the overall tone of knitting will be 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.
Killington is a lofty DK weight blend of Polwarth wool and Tussah silk. It has a subtle sheen, a slightly crisp hand, and excellent yardage. We love Killington for all sorts of sweaters and big squishy shawls and wraps.
