Cough, Cough - I'm Allergic to Wool
Okay, no I'm not really allergic to wool, but I know many people who are (including my mom). So when our friends at Farmhouse Yarns created their new "I'm Allergic to Wool" chunky cotton yarn, we were all over it. You don't have to be allergic to wool to love this yarn, either. It's hand dyed in bright summery colors and comes spun in 1/2 pound hanks.
Farmhouse has some really cute patterns for this yarn, as well. The patterns only require 1-4 hanks of yarn. All of the projects are pretty easy, great for TV knitting or a weekend project.
