Lamb's Pride is one of my all-time favorite, workhorse yarns. It is great for felted bags, beanies, mittens (which will full as they get worn a bunch for snowball fights), slippers, even jackets and sweaters. I love the 15% mohair content and the single-ply, slightly unspun texture, duplicating a rustic handspun. I have used it so much that I am somewhat surprised I haven't featured it before. However, I have made two hats in the past week from the bulky, which I had bought by mistake back last spring while working on my striped traveling bag, and was so delighted with the results, I was tempted to keep one for myself. However, they are part of the Knit Unto Others KAL work I have been doing, so off they go to keep other heads toasty warm this winter.
This is a "pocket" slipper, made from Lamb's Pride Worsted (called that because it is small enough to fit in your pocket!)

There is now even a Lamb's Pride Superwash! I have not tried this yet, and it does not contain the mohair, so I am guarded. I did pick up enough to make a toy monkey for grandbaby Mia's first birthday coming up in January, and will keep you updated.
