What DID come first - the chicken or the egg??
In this instance the YARN came first - it's a combination of several salvaged balls of interesting commercial acrylic and polyester yarns, which, once plied together and then plied again on my take-no-prisoners country spinner Boudicca, just looked like a wonderful pile of assorted hen feathers :)
Knitted up on extreme 27mm knitting needles into a blanket shape, this yarn just needed some lightly felted balls of Poll Dorset and merino wool to become a shoulder-sized wrap with bags of character, ready to be your travelling companion all year round!
Use the pompoms to secure the wrap round your neck as a chunky short scarf, over a jacket as a statement mini-shawl - or dare to wear as a skirt....!!
