Today after work I came by my favourite yarn shop and, as the seller already knows me, I again left with a bag of nice things. Two balls of YarnArt Magic Fine, a thick crochet hook to crochet “milled” tubes and a big ball of YA Crazy Color. This one on the top here, brown, gold and blue:
It’s… nice. And soft. Even though (or maybe because?) it’s 25% wool and rest acrylic. No fuzz, really cute colours – at least this colourset – and it’s lots for really little. About 4 euro paid for 100g and I’m starting to think that the afghan I’m considering is looking more and more probable.
Back to the yarn itself – works nicely as basis for granny squares, crochet hook 02. Even though it’s 260m per 100g, with this content of acrylic it’s much thicker than the same with more wool. It has thickness comparable to 7 Veljesta Polkka, which is 200/100. Tiny bit thinner, but close enough.
Has no visible faults, no uneven spin, only some tiny spots of black dye here and there in other colours, but I’d say it’s by design.
In general: Yarn I would suggest to a beginner – quick effect, no fuzz, easy to undo, vivid dyes and cheap enough. Gonne buy at least another ball, for the afghan.
(as an aside, the other yarns in the afghan are also on that photo – the green one to the left and the brown/cream one below)
