New Discovery

I discovered a new yarn at Michael’s last week. It is Isaac Mizrahi’s Craft Skyscraper.  Mr. Mizrahi really has a hand in everything from fashion to home decor …and now yarn.  The yarn is manufactured by Premier Yarns and contains Acrylic, Bamboo, Alpaca, and Wool fibers. I was first attracted to it because of the colors and then there is the softness. Since it was pretty affordable I decided to give it a try.  I am making infinity scarf using the seed stitch. 

 What I like:

  1. How the colors flow into each other. Have you ever used variegated yarn that has really abrupt color changes? I really don’t care for that. This yarn  has smooth transitions between the 5 colors, which makes it really beautiful. 
  2. Softness: This yarn is super soft to the touch. It feels like baby bunnies.
  3. The price: One skein is $6.99. If you are beginner or on a budget you can’t beat that!

What I don’t like:

  1. The shedding: It hasn’t been a serious amount of shedding, but defiantly noticeable. Good thing I have been wearing mainly casual clothes when knitting with this yarn. Hopefully this changes after a wash.

Overall, I would use this yarn again in the future. It is a good value and the colors and material composition are not bad either.

  1. The Isaac Mizrahi yarn collection has to be one of the best collections a Michael’s since Debbie Stoller’s!!! I haven’t seen this particular style of his yarn yet, but I am so in love with the colors here. They are all so rich and distinct. This is going to make a breathtaking scarf. ❤
