Look Ma…No Pills

Tuesday, January 27th, 2015

 

We can’t sing the praises of Hikoo Simpliworsted enough.  This yarn is terrific, awesome, amazing.

 

Dark and Stormy was a sweater I knit for our 12 in 12 in 2013.  It was fun to knit!

Anyway, It’s been in our store as a sample ever since.  It’s been on hangers and on mannequins, it’s been tried on by regulars and tourists.  It’s been washed a few times too. Anyway, I’m bringing it up again now because I have been wearing this Dark and Stormy sweater now for weeks, almost every day actually and no pilling!  None!

Check out that underarm:)  Not a pill in sight.

 
If you are looking for a yarn for a baby sweater, blanket, afghan, adult sweater, cowl for a teenager, you name it…this is the perfect yarn.

 

It’s not cheap.  $16 for 140 yards of a plump aran weight acrylic blend yarn, but it is so worth it!

 

55% Merino Wool
28% Acrylic
17% Nylon
Machine washable
I’ve thrown it in the dryer (on cool)
No itch factor

 
Check out all the colors here and make something out of it!  You won’t be sorry:)
