There are 2 big boxes of wool yarn that I'm going to sell, since nobody in our family wears wool.
There are 2 big boxes of pearl cotton and other thread-like yarn that I'm also going to sell because I don't do any type of tapestry projects.
There's another big box of cord-type yarn for macrame and some other sort of tapestry projects. Again, not my thing so I'll sell that too.
What I'm keeping is lots and lots of cotton--Coton D'Egypte (Phildar), Country Ribbon (Italy), Iwa Pearl Cotton (Berkeley, CA), Tahki Imports (Greece), and several huge spools of cotton homespun (no name).
There's a bag of Prima Angora Style Double Knit by Hayfield (England). I don't know what I'll do with it, yet, but I think there's enough for a shawl.
10 spools of Hayfield Next Addition Ribbon yarn. I've never tried this before, so it should be interesting. Any suggestions?
Then comes the specialty stuff. There's a bag of heavy, shiny, homespun-looking stuff. ?? 2 skeins of rayon/acryllic variegated ribbon yarn called Parfaite (from Japan), and a bunch of other homespun type cotton blends called Waikiki, from Crystal Palace Yarns (Berkeley, CA).
This is about half of what I got, but my fingers are getting tired and your eyes are probably glazing over. I can't tell you how exciting this is for me. 90% of my stash is good old Red Heart, 25-cents a skein at all the best yard sales.
For me to have bragging rights to yarn like this is really cause for celebration.
Now I gotta go knit something.
