Well, here we are! Another month of Yarnbox excitement! :D I’m sad to say that this will be my last Yarnbox for a while. I’ve got so much yarn around here, and my budget is a little cranky. So I’ll be living vicariously through the other members of the Yarnbox Ravelry group! It’ll still be fun. Plus, I’ll be sharing my FO’s made with past Yarnboxes, so I’ll still be involved in the group.
Ahem, I’d like your attention. Not that I didn’t already have it. I mean, you’re reading this, right? Right. So if you’re a Yarnbox member, haven’t received your box for this month, and don’t want the surprise spoiled, don’t click to read more. All the photos are after the read more button below. You’ve been warned!
Okay, so this month’s yarn is something I have never seen in real life — I don’t think… The fiber is yak! Well, mostly. There’s also some bamboo in there. It’s soooo soft and squishy and pretty! I’m trying to decide if I’m going to leave it natural or dye it. I’ll wait until I decide on a project before I cross that bridge!
As a side note about yak: I was concerned about allergies, so I looked into it. I was very pleased to find out that it’s a hypoallergenic fiber! So no allergies for me! Oh, and guess what else I found out — alpaca is hypoallergenic too. For years I’ve thought I was allergic, but I read that it is a very rare and special person who is allergic to alpaca. If you are one of those people, I want to know!
Anyway, now for the photos. :)
Opening the box…
Look at what was inside! I looooove Soak…just saying.
