Violaceous is a luminous magenta purple, similar to the dominant color in Impatiens. Not for the faint of heart, it’s a powerful purple.

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.

Content: 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool
