OK I'm back. Had anice yummy turkey sandwhich and I got my seocnd wind.

What rhymes with yarn? :thinking: Barn? Darn?Tarn-ish? Varn-ish?warn? well not really.

OK so on with hte show

OK so I lost the label to this one. But its really itchy so I'm guessing its feltable wool. Its very tweedy. Not sure on length but I'm guessing its at least 100 yards (comaprade to other skeins held up next to it about that length) I'd say it'll knit up between a #5-#7 needle.

sauntering their way on the catwalk is this little skein of Jo Sharp. This is from her DK line. THe label says dye lot 2 shade olive. 107 yards 50 grams. US 6 needle recommended and gentle hand wash. Sounds feltable to me.

More Jo Sharp coming up. THe label says "Super soft extra long fibre" Don't know if its from the DK line or not but it has the same dimensions as the gree. 107 yards yada yada. Gentle hand wash sounds feltable to me. This is a tweedy looking twist of brown and black. The picture is really dark. its MUCH lighter

Next up we have this lovely pink of 50% mohair 50% wool. I got it to go with my potential stash for some clogs. The store clerk recommended it but when I got home I realized I had a better pink to go with it. So its totally feltable. The label says Aristocrat brand and this is a skein of heirloom. Shade 333 dye lot 13, 50 grams 76 meters (not sure how much in yards that is ) Recommended 5.5 needles ( I think you could use from size 7-9) again not that dark, its more of a hot pink

Headed to the end here with this stuff. Its a thick and thin verigated .....thing. I hafta be honest I have no idea what this is. I lost the label long ago. I burned a little piece and it lit up real fast so I think its acrylic. BUt its real soft and its blue/purple/gold. I knit some of it already but I can take it out and wind in a ball and straighten it out for you. Prolly a couple of hundred yards. uses a size 11-13 needle
