I spun this yarn from a little chunk o batt that was a sample in a package I received.   I wrapped it around my wrist and decided it was to gorgeous to knit, so now its a cuff Smiley


Sometimes yarn should just be yarn. Smiley

Looks great, is it made into the cuff permanently or just wrapped?

kjlutz, At the moment it's just wrapped, but I plan on making a backing of white felt and just strategically tacking it down.  It was so pretty I couldn't wait to share Smiley

SamanthaM, I can't remember exactly the fibre content, but it definitely has some crab fibre and wool.  No Alpaca though,  I'm sadly allergic to that beautiful stuff. Sad

I love it!  Totally 'get' when you mean sometimes yarn needs to be yarn.  I've spun thick yarn, then plied with sparkly thread that I tied off into place that became a scarf.

Crab fiber??  What is that???  I've not heard of that before.

Thanks!  I'm honestly not sure what crab fibre is!  It's white and shiny though.  I'm guessing its some kind of rayon produced from crabs....  who knows.  with a little science they can turn darn near anything into fibre.

Looks great!  I agree with you, sometimes I like yarn just as it is rather than knitted or crocheted.

I've never heard of crab fiber either.

Crab fiber is a rayon that's produced from the chitin in crab shells. I went and looked for some and whoa! So shiny!

I really love your cuff! The soft green is so lovely. I'd just sit in a corner and rub my wrist all over my face all day. :O

Thank you!   So glad that more then just me thinks that yarn should be yarn sometimes.  And it is just that soft, you could rub it on your face all day and not get itchy.

I think I would have that problem too... everything else would get neglected for the soft pretty yarn.
