I’ve mentioned before about my intro post about my Inlay socks that I was gifted the yarn and had no idea what the yarn was made of, but that it felt like cotton…
I remembered that my Father in Law had gone to a yarn store and got me these skeins. I was floored that he would think of me and get me something as gorgeous as these. I am still a little humbled and eternally grateful. Just look at the beauty!
It bugged me that I didn’t remember what these were, so I did some research *coughfacebookcough* and found my picture. Then I went to Ravelry to see if they had a page for this yarn. Yep…
Turns out that these are Breathless by Shalimar Yarns. Breathless is a 3 ply fingering weight yarn that is made up of 75% Merino, 15% Cashmere and 10% Silk… Absolutely NOT COTTON!
While there is nothing wrong with cotton yarns, I thought that I was an experienced enough knitter to be able to feel the differences between wool and cotton. Nope. Ah well, its the little things like this that keep me humble.
I am glad I know what they are now, I am going to take better care of my Inlay socks, and get them done! Done, I say!
The picture above really doesn’t do the lovely yarn justice! Please check out the Ravelry page for them (Here) or check out their website (Here) I like the Ravelry page because you can also check out what other people are knitting with this lovely yarn.
