Dirty Details: Originally this yarn was going to be named after this raggedy favorite t-shirt of mine, well not the t-shirt, but what was on it. What was on it you ask? I’m getting to it. Buckle up kids, this one drags on a bit.... The one that makes your spouse groan and question its scrutural integrity each and every time it leaves the drawer just because that hole in the front continues to expand.....? Well we all have one, or two, or three... sorry Gary. XD. Anywho mine is this sunblock brand. The ones with the neon goop you rubbed on your nose? Available in all the rage neon colors and don’t forget about white?!? (Almost done, I promise) We’ll I was going to name it after that sunblock brand, but then that very spouse sighed extra long at this name. So I named it ‘92 Tracksuit instead. Which was his idea. The end.
Yarn Base: I fell in love with this yarn while weaving. The tactile experience while handling it is something you will remember. It is cool in hand and smoooth to the touch thanks to the silk. The baby alpaca (and believe me when I say the baby part makes a difference) adds a softness and halo to the blend. Let us not forget about those amazing linen strands. Initially they will be noticeable and I beg you to resis the urge to pick at them because as you use this yarn or whatever you make from it the linen will experience a break in period and just add some dreamy strength and texture to this otherwise liquid soft yarn.
All my photos are taken in the best lighting that I have at that particular time. I live in a 100+ year old house and there is a 15 minute window of decent natural light if the sun cooperates. The only editing I do on photos is to correct the horrible white balance of my cave of a house and to portray the yarn in as true to real life as possible.
