Nasturtium blossoms make a beautiful and spicy salad addition and also inspire this bold colorway. Shades of orange that range from creamy peach to deep marigold contrast with small splashes of neutral leaf green. The green may vary in intensity, but the overall tone of knitting will be orange.
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.
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.
