Need a yarn recommendation
I usually just lurk here, but I could use some recommendations. I'm looking for a soft, black yarn that won't break the bank. I'm thinking some sort of cashmere/merino blend? I need enough to make a scarf, and I'm looking to spend around $20-$25. I browsed my local yarn store today, but nothing jumped out at me. The owner suggested the new Debbie Bliss rialto, but she was sold out. Has anyone used that? Any other recommendations?

Thanks!
Annie

Moda Dea Washable wool is merino and very soft it usually costs $8 a skein and takes about two skeins to make a decent scarf. I bought two skeins with a 40% off coupon and my scarf only cost about $10 to make and the yarn was great. Wonderful stitch definition, nice drape, soft, and most importantly washable and dryable. I highly recommend it

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.
