Our soft Babe yarn, in natuiral creamy white or naturally dyed shades....choose saxon blue, golden marigold, saxon/marigold green, vibrant cochineal, or the blissful peachy pink that is made by avocados..."local" avocado waste from local kitchens!


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 this batch of Babe, we collected all the lamb's wool from Leyden Glen, a beautiful family farm in the northern hills of the Western MA Fibershed.  Babe is a warm, squishy yarn from prancing Romney-cross lambs.
