Update: This yarn offer has been taken and is no longer available.
Dive into this: 12 brand-spankin' new skeins of Anny Blatt/Bouton d'Or Flamme in Glacier 231. This yarn is, in a word, gorgeous. It's looks like roving with two thinner strands of yarn spun around it for a very subtle variegated effect. It's incredibly soft, probably due to its yarn composition: 72% wool, 20% kid mohair, 6% angora and 2% polyamide. Hand-wash recommended. 8mm needles, 11 sts and 16 rows 4"x4" (10x10 cm) square. 1.76 oz (50 grams) in each skein, 33 m.
I bought this yarn without a project in mind, but got interested in it because it was on sale and was so soft and pretty. When the woman at the boutique showed me a sweater knit up in this yarn, I couldn't resist and snatched it up. However, I don't think that my current project lineup is going to allow me time to knit this yarn up, so I'm sharing it as I do not like to hoard yarns that are readily available to me. It's the same gauge as Rowan Plaid so it would probably work for something like a capelet, mini poncho, stockinette stitch sweater, or an extra-long scarf. The texture of the yarn pretty much speaks for itself so those are the types of projects I picture for it.
