Moulin Rose, a Miss Babs Exclusive

0330 1 lg

Ooh, la la! It’s Moulin Rose, the first exclusive colorway in a special little series from Miss Babs just for The Yarn Company. It combines a soft rose (not to be confused with 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 Miss Babs’s accomplice 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.

Moulin Rose will be available in Yummy 2-ply (100% superwash merino, 400 yds/3.9-oz skein, 7-8 sts/in on US #7-8 needles); Yet (65% merino, 35% tussah silk, 400 yds/2.3-oz skein, 8-10 sts/in on US #00-3 needles); and Yasmin (2-ply, 80% merino, 20% tussah silk, 1250 yds/4.6-oz skein, 8-11 sts/in on US #000-1 needles). We will also have it in fiber for spinning and felting (details tba).

What’s more? Zabeth has designed a springtime tank in Yasmin in this colorway—it laces up the front and is très jolie indeed! And Irina Poludnenko? Stay tuned!
