My DD got back from Japan and she bought me this yarn:

I am just floored that she would even think to get me yarn. I really didn't expect much more than a post card.

The brand is Puppy. I checked Ravelry and, although I found the brand I could not find this particular yarn. I'm trying to decide what to make with it. Because the writing is in Japanese I don't even know what the fiber is. I am thinking its a wool/acrylic blend though.

Great daughter! I think you'll find something suitable, too. Try snipping a piece off and burning it....if it's an animal fiber, the smell will tell you. If it's acrylic, it'll be crusty....cotton will just smolder.

How sweet of your DD - love the colors! I see a nice, chunky scarf...but then again, is seems that I am in scarf mode lately - feels like that is all I have been making!

Make sure you use pliers (or something to protect you from the fiber being burned), because if it's acrylic, it can fuse to your skin. Ouch!

Have you checked out yarndex.com? It's got a pretty extensive list of yarns!

P.S. thanks for posting that, I forgot exactly how that works (the smell etc)

Thanks so much! :roflhard: :roflhard: at the translation. Somehow I think something is lost between Japanese and English :teehee: . Here's an example:

"In particular, the coming season, as his shawl to cooling measures are focused!
The most popular jewelry race (the bag can Kirakira) are also handled."
