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.
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.
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.
Tarte is smooth and round, with a balanced 4-ply construction. Nylon and Tencel add strength, sheen, and drape to the superwash Merino in this yarn. Tarte is a beautiful choice for many fingering weight projects, including shawlettes and sweaters where you'll enjoy the generous yardage in each skein. It's also great for socks where you'll enjoy its strength and smoothness.
