Before leaving, in the madness of things, I did a couple of wooly purchases that really pleased me SO much!
I'm going through a lace-phase, and so, while going at my parents, I stopped at Mafil, a big wool "outlet" from a large firm, and allowed myself to test four different lace-yarns.
First thing, a nice coloured, for me of unusual composition (I usually prefer pure wool) beautiful levender hank (here already wind in a nice skein):
It's 40% acrylic, 35% wool and 25% alpaca, rather soft and with subtly changing colours, 2ply yarn.
Second purchase, is a bright green very fine 100% wool.
I was attracted by the colours of this type of yarn, and need to try to knit it to see if it is something I can deal with or if it is really too fine.
Infact I did prefer the following hank:
which is a bit thicker, and always 100% wool. I love also the colour!
Finally a bit of Alpaca:
Maybe I'm going through a green phase....
