Picked up these cones in Atlanta last month during my yarnsploration.
One thing about Habu is that this Japanese yarn does not us "regular" names. ;o)
On the left is A-1, 2/17 tsumugi.....whatcha say?!? Haha! All I know it's 100% silk in color #54, Or should I simply say brown ;op I like that it has specs of white in it too!
I did enjoy playing with the lighting on my yarn p.0rn pics this time! :o)
The other cone in white, color #1 is A-20, 1/20 silk stainless. That is 69% silk and 31% stainless steel.
I do wonder how they come up with their yarn names...so technical, but oh so purty. Making it hard for me to resist trying to work with it.
It is actually soft! I do like how the colors are blending with each other, giving that subtle contrast! But I must say it is like knitting with dental floss! LOL
Let me just say I spent almost 2 hours in the car on the way back from P.url J.am and only got 24 rows in!! This project is slow moving right now with a loooong way to go!
I have a feeling this will be my "in between" project! ;op Haha!
All I am going to say is I am happy to finally get some Habu on my needles!
