You know I’m excited about this! Part two of our order from Anzula has arrived. The folks that recently brought us the kitten soft yarn called Cloud has now brought us this purrfect example of a yarn.
It is what has made this hat a treat to wear everyday for the last few months. It still looks good-as-new with no pills – thank you very much, and no forehead itchies neither. The hat is Brooklyn Tweed’s Rosebud pattern. I made this hat a one skein project by going down a needle size from a 5mm to a 4.5mm, just in case you try to do the same.
The Anzula, For Better or Worsted is made with 80% Superwash Merino, 10% CASHMERE, and 10% nylon. It costs $32.50 for 182 metres (200 yards ). It does not feel like kittens. The tight spin gives it a slippery feeling, and it shines as if spun by Rumpelstiltskin himself. It is also bouncy and springy and full of joy. It does not feel like kittens, and yet it feels gorgeous just the same.
Can’t wait for you all to see it.
