Wendy Eider Yarn Review

Really, really plush yarn!

Wendy Eider Yarn - How often have you seen yarns named for what they want to be?  I can't tell you how may times I have seen the word soft all over a yarn's label and sometimes it is and sometimes not so much.  This time it really IS and I'm going to attempt to describe it for you.

How Soft is Eider?

Ok, this is hard and I think I'm probably not going to do the yarn justice.  It's one of those yarns that you are just going to have to touch to understand just how soft it really is.  The closest I can come is knitting with a marshmallow without the sticky. It's soft. It's plush and light yet warm. It has the softness of the fur of a baby animal - just delightful!

It's in the chunky range and the folks at Wendy are recommending a 10.5 needle, so it's a quick knit. Eider comes in only 5 colors, but they are neutral and perfect for layering over cold weather attire.
