Here is the seventh yarn that I would like to introduce you to:
It is 65% superfine alpaca 32%wool 3% nylon chunky boucle yarn. I have never seen another yarn like this one. It is a super soft bulky weight. It softens up even more when it is washed. I ran it through 1 wash cycle and the yarn really bloomed. I think it would take 2 or more to fully felt. It has 60 yards of chunky yarn and would be suitable for a needle size of 9-11 US.
I chose this particular yarn because I really liked how different it looked and how soft and squishy it was from the beginning. I knit my sample on size 11s and then washed it with one cycle through my washing machine. Its before measurements were 5" x 4" and its post-felting measurements are 5 1/4" x 4".
It would be ideal for hats, scarves, sweaters, or any other project that calls for bulky weight yarn. I can totally picture using it for a child's sweater or jacket. Maybe even a squishy warm sweater for myself... now there is a happy thought.
I listed up 4 skeins of this yarn in my etsy shop. The 4 that are listed are Wild Violets, Raspberry Lemonade, Provence, and Mountain Sunset. So, let me know what you think!
