02-04-2008, 02:54 PM
I found this yarn at my local charity shop in Hertfordshire Uk. Its and American yarn.
Its 41%mohair, 12%viscose, 6%metal, 30%acrylic, 11%nylon
Trendsetter yarns Dune, Van Nuys California, 2 balls in shades of grey/brown and 2 balls in shades of Green. They were marked with USA price tags of $13.50 each, i got them for £3 for all 4. Anyone used this and have any tips for knitting it?
I was thinking a scarf in the 2 colours.
made a scarf with it. I don't know what pattern she used and they're not open tomorrow (Mardi Gras). I do remember her saying that the yarn was not her favorite, but I'm not sure why (and that doesn't mean you won't love it!).
Wish I could tell you more. I'll try to find out more Wednesday.
Are you on Ravelry? I'm sure there are patterns on it. Lemme see if I can give you a link.
Here is one: see if you can look at the patterns: http://www.ravelry.com/yarns/library/trendsetter-yarns-dune/projects
