Originally created for the Surprise shipment of the 2013 Miss Babs Knitting Tour, Surpriza features shades of cream, taupe and chocolate, with purple that varies from Concord grape to soft pink.
This colorway can be 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.
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.
Wild Silk is a Tussah silk laceweight with a slightly matte, "toothy" finish. It has wonderful drape, and is ideal for shawls, while also great for weaving. Nm 20/2. Undyed Wild Silk is a honey tan, not white or cream, so colorways with very light or undyed areas will look different on this yarn.
