Fiber Friday - Unikat

I really like the colors of the yarn in this mix. The colors are really the main reason that this yarn ended up in my stash. They just seem really rich and vibrant. The yarn does have a nice feel to it. It isn't too scratchy, It isn't the softest thing I've ever felt, but I do think that I could wear it close to the skin.



I'm not quite sure what I'll do with this yet. Most of the time when I see this yarn online the advertisement mentions that it is great felting yarn. I'm not so sure what I would knit for felting with it, but I only have about 350 yards total. Maybe that would make a small pillow or cushion cover. Maybe a pair of mitten, I think I have a pattern for felted mittens somewhere.

Could you make clogs out of it or maybe there isn't enough yardage. The color is really nice Mittens would be good but do you ever wear that heavy of a mitten in your weather? I gotta see that stash closet!!!!
