You know, I'm really not sure how this happened - I might have just watched Miss Congeniality 2 or Priscilla, Queen of the Desert or I just needed a screaming contrast to the blues I normally favour. Whatever, it did happen and this glaring mix of speckled pinks and oranges is the glorious result. Go on, be a little wild and crazy and send me photos of what you make, 'cause I really wanna see it! This 80% merino, 20% bamboo is a plump and soft and quite lofty yarn. The drape is wonderful for shawls and wraps, but go down a needle or hook size to make a firmer fabric for blankets or garments. The bamboo takes the colour slightly differently to the merino, giving a slightly heathered look to the colours.
