Originally created for the Surprise shipment of the 2013 Miss Babs Knitting Tour, Surprise features teal and brown, blending to taupe and yellowish-green over lots of natural cream. The colors have room to blend and play.
While we call this a ‘Repeatable Babette’, every skein and every batch is a little bit different. This colorway is also 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.
A lighter fingering weight than our Yummy 2-Ply, Northumbria Fingering is spun from the long, lustrous wool of Bluefaced Leicester sheep. Northumbria Fingering has a nice natural shine that enhances the vibrant, rich colors. It’s great for durable, fine-gauge socks, and lovely in crisp lacy shawlettes.
