Among the many colorways for Claudia's new fingering weight line is Giraffe.


Why Giraffe?


"Our zebra got lonely!" Claudia quips. She notes that its decidedly NON-giraffe-like tones are in keeping with how Zebra also defies convention with its greens and purples (that's a Color Story for another day).


"Sometimes it's fun to zig when everyone expects you to zag," Claudia adds. "And the thought of a red-and-blue giraffe is definitely unexpected."
