Wool and the Gang recommends to not machine wash this yarn. Instead, hand wash in cold water, air dry and don’t use an iron.

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’s website}

Highly durable is an understatement and it’s super soft, like a baby bunny or alpaca in this case..
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.


I finished a hoodie knitting pattern.
So, I wanted to give you an update on the yarn.

As soon as I was finished with this hoodie, I wore it! :)

I didn’t block it and I love the look of it.

On the softness scale… I wish I would’ve washed it first. It was a little itchy for a few hours, but then it was fine. I’m not sure if my skin got used to it or if it just softened up. I definitely recommend washing it to make it softer.

Now on the warmness scale… it’s super warm! :) I’m always cold and I usually wear a long sleeved t-shirt under my sweaters, but I made this sweater a little snug, so I couldn’t wear a t-shirt underneath, thankfully, I would’ve burned up. I did wear a tank top under it and no jacket and it was about 40℉, which I consider very cold and my sweater kept me warm and cozy! No coat required.

It was so nice not wearing 5 layers to keep warm. I really need to rethink my wardrobe, so I don’t have to wear so many layers.

Just finished my hoodie sweater and I think there's enough yarn left-over to make leg warmers :)

And there’s enough left-over to make a pair of leg warmers!!!
