Yarn Spotlight:
On this episode's Yarn Spotlight Eunny and Clara are back in the knitting lab to discuss softspun yarns. Featured here in the teal color is Imperial Yarn's Bulky Pencil Roving. Although somewhat delicate to work with because softspun or pencil rovings are not typically strong, the lofty and soft fabric made with this fiber is one-f-a-kind. Also seen here is Naturally Aspire's wool and alpaca super chunky yarn in shades of pink.
