Fibers: 41% wool, 59% rayon
MSRP: $8.00 per skein
If you have been wondering what yarn to make your stylish spring/summer evening shrug from, this may be the one. This yarn has a wonderful texture, lighter than wool alone, and very shiny and smooth from the rayon content. It slides through the fingers and the needles with ease.
The bulky weight will allow you to make a lightweight wrap up very quicky, but you could also choose to make a cardi and the price for yardage will help keep the cost within reason. This would also make a lucious throw for your sofa, or a shiny spring handbag or hat. I have been making a very loose and airy wrap for a gift, combining Softwist with a strand of Metallic FX (to be featured next week), and the results are quite appealing... shiny but not over the top (use Bling Bling for that).
