My new favourite yarn in the chunky division

Beautiful soft chunky yarn. Knits up on a 10 mm needle quickly and with nice stitch definition. Would buy it again.

My Favorite Chunky Yarn!

I absolutely LOVE this perfect blend of alpaca and wool! It is the ideal yarn for an cabled project, as it is soft, cushy, yet your cables will have perfect definition. It is also less expensive than most good quality 100 % wool, for all the softness of alpaca. I will add several colors to my stash during this sale, as I did during the last. I only wish it came in variegated color ways!
