This is a true stashbusting project.
I bought this yarn with friends at least 5 years ago from a guy who was importing yarns from Turkey and selling them from his basement.
I don't know what possessed me to buy it. My friends bought some, too, and I remember them saying that it sheds.
And boy does it. It's a very thick yarn that feels like velour so I had to use a big crochet hook. The other negative is that you can't knot it or cut it because it starts to fall apart.
It does make a nice, soft, warm cowl.
Not sure how long it will last. It may just slowly disintegrate over time.
The bad news is I've got another 2 skeins of the same yarn in teal/turquoise.
Even worse, I just discovered there's one more of each color. I may have to donate them to a secondhand store.
Happy Stashbusting Sunday!
