Moda Dea Silk wool
I was browsing in a Joann Fabric's yesterday and came across something lovely. Moda Dea Silk wool! I think it's 85% wool 15% silk, 150+ yards for $5.99. It feels wonderfully soft and squishy and the colors are awesome.
Sooo has anyone tried this? I think it would make a lovely Bluebell from Fitted Knits. After all my Christmas projects are completed, of course.

Ooooh knit something up! Please!!! What color did you get? What are you going to make with it?

On a side note, right beside the silk wool they had superwash wool - for $2 more. I would've thought the silk wool would have been pricier.

I got mine at AC Moore and I noticed that, too. I think the washable wool had more yardage, but I didn't check, so I don't know.
I have no idea what I'm going to make with it or why I decided I needed two balls. Maybe a hat? Small scarf? Mittens? I got the green color called Wasabi.

You got my favorite color! Waht about a fetching and calorimetry? You would probably have enough yardage to do both.
