Nope,I'm not talking about one of those supposedly healthy blended fruit, wheatgerm and tofu drinks. I'm talking about YARN! Red Heart has come out with new yarns this season that I am really excited about.
This is Mystic in the Cornflower color and it's a worsted weight. The fiber content is 70% acrylic & 30% alpaca. It is soft without the itch that some alpaca yarns have. That's a real plus for me as I find Kidsilk Haze unbearably scratchy, seriously. Each skein is 154 yards and has a recommended knitting needle size of a US 7 and K-10.5 crochet hook. Oh and the look is soft & a little shiny.It will be good for scarves and shawls due to it's drapiness but I want to make some toys with it as well. Loving this blue!!
Next up is Curly Q in the Totally Teal colorway. Isn't the color fantastic? I'm a wee bit partial to blue. This yarn is chubby (super bulky) and stretchy and just a lot of fun. The fiber content is 94% acrylic, 5 % polyester & 1 % spandex. The ball has 150 yards and the recommended knitting needle is a US size 13. I've been swatching this one and see so many possiblities for this yarn. The stretch aspect makes this yarn especially interesting to me. LOVE it!
