Babe is expected to be back in stock September 2022.


Our soft Babe yarn, in natural shades, or dyed with Avocado or Cochineal.


Babe is a 2-strand single ply DK weight yarn; the 2 strands are gently twisted together to create the illusion of a single ply but with greater strength.  For Babe, we collected handspinning-quality wool from a beautiful family farm up in the hills of Colrain,MA.  Babe is a soft, squishy yarn from smiling Romney sheep and you won't be able to stop touching it! 


We offer a spectrum of skein-dyed colorways using plants and insects which have been part of traditional dye applications for centuries.  The naturally-colored Babe is not a pure-white yarn...it is creamy and bright and takes color beautifully.
