More 'Sinsation' yarn


Bought 10 balls of this aqua 'Sinsation' online, so I could make a wider felted chenille scarf with it. (Can you tell that I gravitate towards blues, aquas and turquoises?) This scarf will be for me, which means it won't be finished before next year because it's now October 2nd and I've decided to make scarves for my Christmas gifts, which means I won't be knitting anything for myself until after December 26th!

can Sinsation be felted? I thought it had to be 90% wool....

It sure can! The core of this yarn is wool (the outer chenille part is rayon), and so when you throw the knitted item in the washer and dryer, it comes out shrunk up a bit and the stitches are all smoothed out and more even. Just the wool part felts, which draws in all the stitches tighter. It's way cool.
