Happy Birthday, Babs! 2018's special colorway, Birthday Jubilee, is a cheerful explosion of color inspired by an exuberant wrapping paper pattern.
This colorway is highly variable. If you need more than one skein for your project, we will do our best to visually match them. For even results, you must alternate skeins. If you'd prefer darker or lighter skeins (or more blue or pink, etc), please make a note on your order when you check out.
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.
A lighter fingering weight than our Yummy 2-Ply, Katahdin 437 (formerly known as Northumbria Fingering - it is exactly the same yarn) is spun from the long, lustrous wool of Bluefaced Leicester sheep. BFL is a perfect canvas for Babs’ colors, giving the yarn a rich depth and slightly glossy finish. It's great for durable, fine-gauge socks, and lovely in crisp lacy shawlettes.
