R&R Hand-dyed Heavy Metal Bulky
A sturdy, no-nonsense yarn that is cushiony and soft, producing garments that will last for years. The speedy gauge lets you knit larger outerwear garments quickly. This is a bundle-'em-up and send-'em-outside-for-hours-of-snow-fort-building-fun yarn. Textured stitches and cables really stand out, adding interest to more utilitarian coats, jackets and ponchos. The longer superfine alpaca fibers give the yarn just a little bit of sheen and increase the warmth to weight ratio of the wool.
