Knitter's Review
December 14, 2006

yarn candy

Superman had kryptonite, I have cashmere. No matter how strong my defenses, they break down completely the moment even the smallest bit of cashmere enters the room.

That's precisely what happened this week when I learned about Martha, a new hand-dyed wool blend from Scheafer Yarn that just happens to have 10% cashmere and 10% angora in the mix. Join me for a swatch.
