Miss Babs, Yowza DK: Hitchhiker's Birthday
Miss Babs and her devoted team dye yarn and fiber in Mountain City, Tennessee. This colorway is part of her Babette series- the picture represents colors found in the skein, with each skein having more or less of the color, or different concentrations. Each skein is unique, thus is called a "Babette." Grab one or more to discover why Babs and her team have such an enthusiastic following at fiber fairs and festivals.
You'll be saying "Yowza! These skeins are BIG!" when you see this yarn. The skein is a huge half pound, and works well for sweaters, baby items and snuggly shawls and wraps. It's a light worsted weight, but is often substituted in patterns calling for a DK weight yarn.
