I picked up a cone of yarn at Goodwill last week. There was no label on it, but a, what appears to be quite aged, sticker on the inside of the cone reads,
"MICHELL & CIA SA
MADE IN PERU
followed by some numbers which make no sense to me. It’s an off white, very soft, fine yarn, which appears to be 3 plies. It has a sort of mohair or angora look to it, slightly fuzzy, with "hairs’ here and there.
I don’t have any small sized knitting needles yet, so I crocheted a small swatch of it with a size 5 hook. It’s a really soft texture. I’m thinking that when I ever get experienced enough to make sweaters, I’d like to knit a skimpy tank with spaghetti straps for my 21yod, assuming there’s enough there (and I’m really not sure of that, since I’ve not gotten experienced enough to judge that yet, either!).
