Ten years ago I received this yarn as a Christmas gift from someone in my office. She knew I wanted to try felting and this yarn is great (so I’ve heard) for felting.
I bought a new winter coat this year and it’s not my usual red or green. It’s called Marigold (source).
Anyway I need a new hat and purse to go with this unusual (for me) color.
My green and blue hat just doesn’t look that good with this golden-yellow.
Nor does my Ruby and Charcoal purse I made several years ago. Plus it’s just too small!
After swatching the Lopi and holding it against my skin, it’s too scratchy for a hat but it will make a perfect purse. I only have 320 yards so I hope I have enough for something felted that won’t be too small.
And it’s only one color. It’s a BIG no-no to mix different brands of yarn when felting so if I want another color, I’ll either have to dye this or find it in a different color…and since that yarn is discontinued, finding some might be difficult.
No specific pattern yet for the purse. Any suggestions?
