We're celebrating the golden 50th anniversary of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival with this soft rose gold with red and gold speckles. It's a perfect contrast for rich, warm jewel tones.
You can see all the yarns dyed in this colorway by visiting our Golden Anniversary colorway collection.
This yarn is speckled: it has a tonal-colored background shade peppered with small dark specks and spots of dye. Each skein is different in terms of speckle distribution and placement. We will do our best to choose multiple skeins that coordinate well.
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!
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.
