Special for Virtual VKL May 2020! Pacifica has a soft background of watery light blues and greens, with pale or undyed areas evoking the reflection of light through water, and speckles in shades of teal, deep blue, and rich green for bits of seaweed. This colorway may also include occasional red or yellow spots on some of the skeins and bases, which are considered part of the colorway.
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. If you have any questions about the color, please give us a call or email to ask for a photo - we are always happy to describe our current batch for you to make sure it meets your needs!
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.
