Kemp-Corn Fiber Yarn?
How does it feel? Is it like cotton or bamboo? Is it woven like the SWTC Bamboo? The colors are very pretty! This Iowa girl wants to knit with corn!

I just had to go feel it up again after reading this! It is nice and soft...more of a flat yarn though like a ribbon. It seems like it would drape really nice. I can't wait to try it. This is as close up I as I could get without too much blur.

I only have the color "Aidan" right now. The other ones I ordered are supposed to come next week. You can see all the colors at SWTC under new yarns. I will probably be placing another with them very soon so if anyone has special requests for colors, quantity, etc. please let me know.
