Morrocon Wool Sampler Freeform

For the month of November, I received a ball of Morrocon Wool from a yarn shop in Huntsville to play with and talk about. The yarn is aran weight and a spun single. It's fabulous for scrumbling.

The ball of yarn is the Morrocon and in this freeform patch, I used it to test 3 techniques. I first crocheted with it using the bullion stitch in the spiral. This yarn is perfect for bullions because it doesn't split or snag, the yarn pulls through the hook smoothly. Knitting this yarn was just as smooth, and as you can see with the garter stitch, it provided wonderful stitch definition. It bound off nicely without any splitting. I left a long enough tail to test it in embroidery. Yep...this yarn is a keeper. This yarn will felt too for anyone looking for a yarn for a felting project.

This yarn is available at the Fiber Art Work yarn shop in Huntsville, Alabama.
