I also received this beautiful hand-dyed yarn from Ginny! Its South West Trading Company Tofutsies. Here's what one reseller says:
"Tofutsies" YarnFor all you sock lovers who enjoy colorful combos & unique fibers, we have in stock "Tofutsies" sock yarn from South West Trading Company. Who knew that you could use chitin (made from shrimp & crab shells) to create wonderfully soft & durable fiber? Leave it to the yarn innovators at SWTC to add it to superwashed wool & traditional cotton plus Soysilk, South West's trademarked fiber made from tofu byproducts. The result is a terrific sock yarn with antibacterial properties. Made of 50% superwash wool, 25% soysilk, 22.5% cotton & 2.5% chitin.
Interesting Note: Scientists have found this type of chitin to be very compatible with human tissue and helpful in accelerating the healing of wounds.
Ginny dyed this hank herself! Itsn't she awesome! I can't wait to knit it up!
The scarf is made from Rainbow Boucle varigated yarn - Multi-directional scarf made up of small triangles to give the varigated pattern a different look.
This was a fun pattern to make. Bigger needles would result in a more lacy pattern. I was afraid that the fringe would quickly unravel so I crocheted little loops on the end.
