(their site was down when I found the link, hopefully it will be up soon)

I was thinking of making these

with some candy in them for teacher gifts (I better get a move on then, I have to make five!). I was kind of wanting to save the Kureyon I have left for myself :oops: but I can get the Felt-It at Hobby Lobby. I might have to double-strand it to get bulky gauge, but I'm not terribly concerned about that.

I haven't used it, but it doesn't seem like it has much in the way of yardage - 97 m per 50 grams, as opposed to 223 m (I think) for Patons Classic Merino.

Patons Classic Merino is 100grams though so they are similar weights.
