Habu Yarn!

I now have me some Habu goodness!! This came in today’s mail.

Look! The shine on the silk stainless is amazing! The cotton chenille isn’t as velvety as I imagined it would be, rather it reminds me of leather string (is that what they’re called?), still interesting. And the cork chenille… I already have a name in mind, maybe you can guess from the texture?

I’ve been fascinated by the different textures and materials Habu Textiles uses in their products. But I haven’t had much luck in finding them locally or even online. I have a couple of design ideas and went hunting for something special to use.Immediately I thought of Habu and selected the Cork Chenille and the yummy Silk Stainless to try.

I added in the Cotton Chenille to make a couple of washcloths (but the care instructions mention nothing about machine wash/dry!).
