Part 10: Zoom Loom Yarn Explorations

Be Sweet Medium Boucle Baby Mohair, in Pale Rust. This fuzzy goodness would make a wonderful lightweight yet warm lap blanket or a cute cowl.

Dream in Color, Calm, color Brilliant 712, 100% wool, light worsted weight, single ply. A nice, lofty yarn that can be used for a hat and scarf combo.

Mountain Meadow Wool Jackson, 100% merino wool, color Lupine. This yarn weaves up beautifully and makes a square that could be used for just about anything. Baby blocks would be super cute with embroidered letters or numbers.

Pagewood Farm Swagger LIght, 100% merino wool, color Violet Fusion. This yarn felts like a dream, making it a good choice for a project that could use a firmer fabric, such as a tote or slippers. With a lighter washing, you could use this for other projects as well.
