Well I am using this really interesting yarn I bout years ago. I don't even think they make it anymore. It's called MODA DEA Tweedle Dee Shaded Effect Yarn. It's a Bulky weight 80% acrylic 16% Wool, and 4% other yarn. I made a generic patterned cowl in this type yarn in a different color last year and it looked awesome. It's really soft too. So I thought I would give it a whirl!
