2020's special show colorway for the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival is a joyful speckled mix of pinks and purples over a light pink and cream base.

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

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.

Size: 1200 yd / 6.6 oz (1095m / 185g) skeins
Content: 65% Merino wool, 35% Tussah silk
Gauge: Heavy lace weight. 8-10 stitches per inch on US 00-1, variable in lace knitting.
Care Instructions: Hand wash, dry flat.
