Felted yarn! I've seen it before, but this one was particularly intriguing. Imagine a slightly denser, softer Lopi with a much more regular thickness and that slightly slippery touch of Alpaca.

Meet Baby Alpaka Naturbelassen, this week's reviewed yarn.

Interesting! I see a lot of singles in nalbinding and wonder how durable the finished item will be. I think this would be the right yarn for that application, and it seems like the finished item would be soft enough for a hat or mittens.

G'morning! While reading your review while knitting, the thought occurred to me that Clara-read reviews would be so nice... your lovely voice and no need to stop knitting while reading about knitting. Any chance you would be willing to add that option?

As for the yarn, it sounds interesting, although I would never use bleach as suggested on the label... would disintegrate the yarn I think.

If its similiar to Lopi, do you think it would be good for colorwork?

What a great idea! Especially for those of us who cannot knit and read at the same time (yet)!
