Chunky Puppy


This is one of my most favorite batts to spin.  It's made by our friend Sally of Yorkie Slave Art Works.  We see Sally and her sister Mary of Butterfly Girls Designs at several shows each year and I always buy batts from them... and usually more Chunky Puppy if I've run out.  I love the blend of bright colors and I love the way these batts spun up.  I have both knitted and woven this yarn into scarves.  Both were wonderful and were gone out of the booth at the first show.  I'm getting ready to start a shawl out of this great yarn, but I love to spin it so much that I have lots of the yarn to share.

Our yarn is wound into hanks. If you would like us to wind the yarn into balls for easier knitting or weaving, please let us know. We are happy to provide this service at no charge. Please note this may require cutting the yarn if the hank has too many yards to be wound into a single ball.
