I am so privileged to share with you, my readers, one of my personal top three favorite yarns. I have been using Miss Babs yarn for a few years now and have fallen in love with her yarns, colors and her customer service. I was so excited to hear that I was going to be able to feature this yarn for you all that I about came out of my shoes!! You too will find that this will quickly become on of your new favorites as well.
This happens to be Windsor Sock
Fingering / 4 ply
400 yards/113 grams
US 1 - 3 or 2.25 - 3.25mm
The color way that she has provided for us is was she calls 'A Unisex Colorway' perfectly named,
Into the Abyss. You can see that it starts in varying shades of light blues and turns into soft greens with almost a dark olive color to finish off the look and appeal. The twist on her yarns are so clean and you will have a hard time finding anything better.
I chose a shawl to show off the color detail for you all, Mizzle
What has to be mentioned, besides all her amazing colors, is the softness and feel of her yarns. If I were to place one of these skeins in your hand, you might not agree with me that this is just sock yarn. I am telling you, this is the softest, most durable fiber made into yarn you might have ever knit with.
Every skein of yarn or bump of fiber that comes from Miss Babs is carefully wrapped in Miss Babs printed tissue paper and her famous mini skein of some other kind of yarn for you to knit up and get hooked on.
If you ever get the chance to see her display at a fiber show. DO SO! She has walls and walls of color that will trap you for hours. It is always so hard to make a purchase when you can see, feel and smell all her yarnie goodness!
Thank you Miss Babs for letting me review your Windsor Socks!!
