A tale of... 18... yarns

Hello all!

So by birthday was this past week and I received the best gift.

Literally.

The best gift.

In the history of ever.

Take a peek:

 
I have no words....

 
My family could not know me better. Aren't the colors perfectly selected?
 
Well, in reality, I picked out the colors. But still.
 
 
18 balls of Knit Picks most famous yarn, Wool of the Andes.
It's 100% Peruvian Highland Wool. 110 yards per skein. And it is so wonderfully soft. Not like so-soft-it-slips-off-your-fingers soft, no, more of a OMG-this-is-so-squishy-and-I-need more-of-this-stuff soft.
Does that make sense?
 
Honestly, I love how it's packaged. With the white label, I don't know, it makes me feel like I just got home from a fiber festival and bought some expensive handspun that has left my pocket empty.
 
Except for the fact that this isn't handspun. Nor is it expensive.
We're talking $2.49 a ball, people.
*jaw drops*
Not. Even. Kidding.

 
If you yarnies want to put together the same ensemble, these are the colors I picked. From left to right:
Top row: Red, Rouge, Papaya Heather, Blossom Heather, Conch, Orange
Middle Row: Caution, Semolina, Green Tea Heather, Avocado, Peapod, Tranquil
Bottom Row. Wonderland Heather, Marina, Ciel, Haze Heather, Columbine, Fairy Tale
 
What do you think? Were you drooling just as much as I was?

  4. Happy Birthday! And you gave me a gift (though it is not my birthday) sharing that yarn. I have a blanket I starting to plan. I really wanted to make it affordable but did not want to do acrylic.

    1. Wonderful! I'm so happy I could help!
      And I totally understand! There's a time and a place for acrylic, but sometimes, you just gotta have some wool! ;)
