Sumptuous

Sumptuous is definitely the word. I saw this yarn in an email from Purl. It's Ozark Handspun, a 50-50 mix of wool and mohair that has funky colors and a great texture. It varies from almost thread-like thinness to thick, bulky wisps.


Here's a piece of a scarf that I was able to whip up in less than 4 hours.


A close up of the textures and colors of this amazing yarn.

I have a friend who is currently freezing in NYC. I think I will forward it to her so she can stay toasty.

For those interested in knitting patterns, this took 3 balls of Ozark Handspun in "Sumptuous". Size 17 needles. Cast on 8 stitches. Knit all rows until you run out of yarn. Bind off loosely. Weave in all ends and be warm.
