Katia Fabula. Again.
Katia Fabula, a super bulky, superwash, super-soft merino wool, has been a popular choice for hat-making (not least because our Fabula sample is, ahem, a hat). It's thickness, softness, and washability all conspire to make this a quick, cozy, easy-care yarn for accessories. A common question from knitters, though, has been, "Are these all the colors?" Since it was a new yarn for us, we'd selected only three colors to carry at the shop: a blend of neutral colors, a reddish purple, and a pinkish purple. Now that Fabula has been successful, when it was time to reorder, we picked a new color to add to our collection: blues.
I think it rounds out our small color selection nicely. Unfortunately, we just don't have enough room to stock every color it comes in, but it's nice to add a new color every once in a while. Next time you're looking to make a quick cold-weather accessory, remember Fabula!
