Feeling Good Yarn is sustainably produced in the Andean Highlands, supporting Peru’s remote alpaca growing communities. The yarn is made using a distinctive cage structure where air pressure blows the Alpaca/Merino into the cage, the result being a highly durable yarn with lots of volume!” {quoted from Wool and the Gang}

Video Yarn Review: Feeling Good Yarn by Wool and the Gang

Highly durable is an understatement AND it’s super soft, like a baby bunny.

I’ve been hoarding this yarn for months trying to decide what I want it to be.

Honestly, I still don’t know what I want it to be… a pullover vest, a hoodie, a sweater.

I’m keeping my options open. It mainly depends on how much yarn it takes to knit each one.

I know I want to design a top that’s long and cozy, so I don’t know where my journey will end, which adds an element of excitement.

I don’t want to set my heart on one thing and then be disappointed because it ends up being something else… I just go with it.

I just started the 3rd ball of yarn, so I think I have enough to do a hoodie! {Nope, I don’t have my heart set on one thing here… yeah right!}

If I do have enough to make a hoodie, you know I’ll do my best to eliminate seams… my nemesis, and create a video to show you how I created it.

I do my best to make my patterns easy to recreate.

Hoodies are my “comfort clothes.” I know that sounds weird, but I’ve heard people talk about comfort food, like mac & cheese or potato soup, something hearty that brings back fond memories of their childhood.

Like comfort food, I have “comfort clothes” singular though, I only feel that way about hoodies.

I love when the season changes to fall and I get to put a hoodie on… it just feels good.

I feel warm and safe and at peace.

To take that feeling to the next level, I need to be warming myself by a campfire… {deep breathe} such wonderful memories.

I don’t reminisce very often, but it sure does feel good.

Please take a moment to reminisce and share your “comfort clothes”

This yarn looks so soft! I like that you showed us how strong it is. My comfort Knit is one of the first cowls I made using the seed stitch. I still wear it every winter :)
Thank you Jennifer for a great review. I am now considering buying this yarn.
