Here’s a secret: the big orange trailer we drive to shows is decorated on the inside with motorcycle wallpaper. This is our homage to Big Orange and the classic biker colors of black, orange, and silver. Whether you’re a real biker chick or you just dream of being one, this color is for you.
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.
Yearning is simply a triple-sized skein of our Yet heavy lace weight yarn, perfect for larger projects. Somewhere between a true laceweight and a fingering weight, we think of Yet as a 'rustic' lace yarn, even though it's a sophisticated merino and silk blend. The slightly heavier grist of this yarn means it's easy to work with, especially for newer lace knitters. Yet wears well and continues to look good year after year. Try it in shawls and lightweight sweaters.
