Purple Waves of Merino
Well, that's sort of what I had in mind.
Here is a sweater sleeve ... inching along, I am.
I was at Joanne's this past weekend, looking for the roving to make the slipper. I picked up some nice roving, not the stuff above (I can't remember the name of it) and I was almost to the register when I happened to look down at the label.
It was 80% acrylic. Some company had the nerve to produce acrylic roving. I stomped around the yarn section for a while, found some proper roving -- 100% wool -- and purchased that.
Acrylic roving! The nerve!
