Dilute the over-fluffy effect by combining the eyelash with a "quieter," plainer yarn. Use a matching color or choose a softer, grayer shade. Either way, the fabric will look richer and less hysterical.

I've made several scarves with eyelash and other novelty yarns to keep on hand as last-minute gifts. Kids (especially little girls) love them. (Just don't give one to a knitter!)

Amen, sister!

I've been tempted to make an afghan with eyelash yarn, because I have so much of it in my stash. Lots of people with good intentions have given me skeins of it, saying, "I got this at the dollar store the other day." I always say thanks, then it just gets added to my mountain of eyelash yarn.

I figure that a child or teenager would probably LOVE a rug or a pillow or a blanket made with it.
