Cheerful and sunshine-bright, Daisies is our second special colorway for the 2021 Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. Petals of yellow, orange, coral-pink, and warm purple are scattered over a natural cream background.

We'll do our best to match multiple skeins. If you have a color you'd prefer to see more of, please let us know in the notes at checkout.

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. If you have any questions about the color, please give us a call or email to ask for a photo - we are always happy to describe our current batch for you to make sure it meets your needs!

Katahdin 437

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.

Size: 437 yd / 3.5 oz (400m / 100g) skeins
Content: 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester wool
Gauge: Fingering weight. 8-10 stitches per inch on US 0-2.
Care Instructions: Machine wash gentle, dry flat.
