I Couldn't Resist
Vintage Sayelle from Faith's Grandma's Collection
Yes, I know that the preferred yarns to knit and crochet with nowadays are natural fibers. Wool, cotton, bamboo, silk are all lovely. Since I learned to knit in the early 1960's, the yarn of preference in Southern California at the time was acrylic...better known as "Sayelle." Acrylic is my first yarn love. The colors can be vibrant and exciting. The newer acrylics can be soft and less scrunchy than the yarn of the 60's and 70's. This is Southern California! Most of the year the weather is mild. We don't need to wear no stinkin' wool here!
This is my qualification for succumbing to Marie's suggestion to purchase WEBS Mill Ends and Closeouts Acrylic for $1 per 220 yard skein if you purchase 10 skeins of one color.
May I present "Raspberry" and "Cherry".....100% virgin acrylic beauty.
