Originally created for the Surprise shipment of the 2013 Miss Babs Knitting Tour, Surprise features teal and brown, blending to taupe and yellowish-green over lots of natural cream. The colors have room to blend and play.
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.
This colorway is also 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.
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.
