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.

    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.

      Hi Linda, it’s so good to hear from you! Yes, it’s soo soft! I’m so glad you liked the review, I’m super impressed with this yarn! I’m still working on my hope-to-be-hoodie, so I don’t know how it’ll hold up, but I think this one’s going to last for years :) If you decide to get it, let me know what you make and if you like it :)
