Mystery Yarn

While I was still in Saskatoon a summer or two ago, I happened to find myself in one of the secondhand stores along 20th Street. I always check out the crafting supplies section because you never know what you might find. On this occasion, I found a couple of cones of yarn with a cryptic (to me at least) handwritten label on them. I fished it out of my stash the other night to do up a swatch with it.

It’s kind of lovely to work with. It’s a nice, neutral, natural brown, a little bit fuzzy like an alpaca, but fairly soft and a bit slippery, which makes me wonder if it’s a blend with some other fibre.

Any guesses about what I’ve got here?
