Yarn Spotlight:
Join Eunny and Clara on this episode's Yarn Spotlight as they discuss yarn's halo. What is a yarn halo and what yarns tend to have them? Featured on this Yarn Spotlight is Bijou Basin Ranch's Seraphim yarn, an angora and and vicose blend. The viscose in this yarn keeps the mohair's halo less drastic. Also featured is Halcyon Yarn's Victorian Boucle, a mohair, wool, and nylon blended yarn with a strong halo that isn't sticky and creates a soft fabric. Also seen is Be Sweet's mohair yarn (light pink) and Grignasco Knits' kid seta yarn (red).
