Miss Babs in the House!

Miss Babs yarns will be at VKL, and only at The Yarn Company booth! We will have Yowza---Whatta Skein!, always a crowd favorite, in 10 colors, including our own exclusive colorway Moulin Rose. We will have only 8 skeins of each color, so get ’em while they’re hot! And, Miss Babs herself, with her accomplice Miss Jen, will make surprise appearances---so be sure to come meet them! And? A special surprise form Miss Babs herself- debuting at VKL, her brand-new Rainbow Polydactyl Set!

A special edition not to be missed, these ‘yummy’ toe sets were put on Miss Babs website as a preorder Jan 14---but will be available for physical sale, presto bingo into your hot little hands, at our booths (#530-536) at VKL! Only ten sets available. They are packaged as a set of six meaningful colorways, researched by Jen: Ardor (red for love), Zest (orange for healing), Rays (yellow for sunshine), Yo Mama (green for nature), Harmonia (blue for harmony), and Oomph (purple for vitality). We will only have 10 sets, so hurry!

We will also have exclusive Moulin Rose kits: Irina Poludnenko’s Moulin Rose Flower Top and Necklace, and Zabeth’s Moulin Rose Camisole (see below for details). Moulin Rose combines a soft rose (as opposed to a sweet pink) and a thoughtfully distributed black. Miss Babs likes to dissect what happens when dyed yarns are knitted up; after all, a skein can be beautiful on the shelf, but, as Jennifer puts it, “what looks good in the hank can come out looking like clown vomit. This is not clown vomit.” Miss Babs had brushstrokes in mind when she created Moulin Rose; the black runs through the yarn in varying intensities, so when it is knitted up you get a series of blips and dashes, rather than a decided, pencil-like line.
