while stocks last as when its gone, it really is gone!

This yarn is super soft and very easy to knit and crochet with and gives excellent stitch definition.

It is a standard chunky weight yarn that is perfect for all sorts of knitting and crochet projects for all the family from chunky cosy blankets for you or baby to hats, garments and even a bag!

 Jacqui made her Knitted Weekend Sweater in this yarn, using the colour Oyster. The finished garment is incredibly soft and it has already been claimed by someone when we have no more stocks of the yarn!   Haha!

We used needles far larger than the ball band suggested to give this sweater a loose texture, and the slightly dropped shoulders give it a more relaxed feel.
