Prism Loopy Yarn is a feltable double dyed yarn that is a blend of 74% rayon and 26% wool. Each skein weighs 2 oz and measures to 58 yds. The suggested gauge for loopy is 12 sts = 4" # 11 before felting.
Loopy is a great new yarn consisting of a wool core surrounded by rayon boucle. The wool is dyed one solid color, then the rayon is dyed in multi-colors. While it makes a very nice fabric just knitted, once it is felted the real magic happens! The wool core shrinks considerably, forming a nice dense felt, and the rayon loops are contracted and captured, obscuring the individual rows and stitches. The over-all feel is that of Persian Lamb. Try this on your favorite felted bag pattern--you'll love it.
