All of Prisms Stuff yarns are mostly cotton, rayon and nylon. Wild Stuff has about 25% kid mohair, fine wool and alpaca, with a lot of eyelash and metallic. Cool Stuff has no wool or mohair, less eyelash and about the same amount of metallic. Light Stuff has no wool or mohair, some metallic and very little eyelash. The Stuff skeins have more yardage and generally make a ligher weight garment. Impressions is very chunky, with lots of think wool and nylon blends, fur yarns, cut silk fabric strips and triple strands of eyelash. It has half the yarndage of Wild or Cool Stuff.

Light Stuff - 400 yards - 5 sts = 1 inch on US #6 needle.
