Twilleys of Stamford Yarn


I couldn’t resist! I saw some gorgeous yarn at 3 Bags Full, but didn’t want to spend $42 on a skein, but found this at Birkeland Brothers which is different, but had that twirly variagated colour that I wanted to try.

It’s called “Freedom Spirit” and is 100% wool by Twilleys of Stamford (made in England). It’s kinda fuzzy and rough (doubt I’d be able to stand any clothing made of it — it makes me sneeze too), but it’s gorgeous and only cost me $6. It’s got 120m (50g). I’m going to make a little amigurumi octopus out of it. I should be able to make quite a few.
