Shiny Mystery Yarn
This is the label - Italian Straw knitting yarn. It's not straw, but it certainly looks kind of raffia-ish.
Because it's so splitty, though, it would be very easy to separate into single strands....
And I have thirteen skeins of it.
It was unusual, it was vintage, and it was cheap - AUD$20 for the lot plus postage. So, now the big question becomes - what in the name of all that's yarny do I do with it??
I think the mega splittiness would mean it would drive me out of my mind if I tried to knit straight from the skein. Winding it into single strands would be incredibly time consuming, but feasible.
It is a beautiful greeny olive colour, and it is lovely and shiny.
Any ideas?? Anyone??
