I am very careful about what kind of wool I buy because it makes me itch so much it's like breaking out in hives unless it's cashmere. So I was concerned about buying six expensive skeins of Knit Collage Cast Away and having it bulky and itchy. Not the case. It's soft and so much fun to work with. Made two giant scarves for my 30 year old daughters for Christmas. They are fussy about wool too. So if you are too be assured this yarn is not only gorgeous but like wearing a soft cloud around your neck. I love the scarves to much I just ordered 3 more skeins to make one for myself. Yay!

Knit Collage Cast Away Yarn
Our friends at Knit Collage are always setting trends - the latest creation is Cast Away Yarn! Some of the yarns have bits of sparkly glitz, while others are a more natural look. Cast Away comes in a range of hand-carded neutrals with bits of brights colors handspun throughout. In some colorways 10 fibers colors are all carded and spun together. The finished result is a beautiful melange of colors in a soft thick and thin textured yarn. Cast Away is similar to Pixie Dust but much smaller in yarn size, knitting up on US size 11-15 needles.
