Some of you might remember the Baabajoe’s
yarn from several years ago, Wool Pak, which we
had in 3 weights, 14ply chunky, 10 ply aran and 8
ply dk from New Zealand. A lovely wool, very
natural, still smelling like the sheep, (only clean!)
Much of the pattern support was for felting, from Fiber Trends patterns. It
is now back on the market, and distributed from the US. This is a nice,
tough and affordable yarn which will stand up to wear and tear. We will
bring in some colours to test the market with our customers. Watch for it!
