Full circle yarn, made from recycled fibers. It’s spun from a blend of merino and highland wool fibers that would have been discarded, allowing for reduced waste and conservation of natural resources.

Ok, that’s what Knit Picks says.

This is what I say…. I’m working on a scarf out of this color green “Spring” (you knew it had to be green!). This single ply is almost like a pencil roving, (think Lopi), but sooooo much softer than any bulky single spun I’ve ever used. The bulky weight calls for larger needles, obviously, which contributes to a pretty quick  knit. It’s a sturdy fabric that I’m knitting (combination of seed stitch and basket weave stitch), but still, the thing I keep going back to is how soft it is. It does split a bit, but I’ve never knit with a single spun bulky that didn’t, and it’s definitely a lot less than others I’ve worked with.

You really need to try some of this, but hurry, it’s a limited edition. Lots of fun heathery colors. Check them out HERE

And, now, for another of Knit Picks limited edition yarns…..Brava! The softest, nicest 100% acrylic I’ve every run through my stubby little hands……and I’ve got a whole knit along project planned.

Check out the Baby Cardigan, Bonnet and Socks HERE.

I’ve ordered the yarn and I’ll start my KAL as soon as I get it.

Probably about a week, if anyone wants to join me!
