You have to feel sorry (or not) for a yarn distributor these days. Every claim you may put on a yarn label or website will be scrutinized.
… like this one!
Maybe the missing 5% is a fudge factor.
(Don’t worry, it’s not cashmere. I’m sure KFI will fix it sometime. Everybody else, including Katia, says that the composition is 50/25/25 wool/silk/nylon.)
Speaking of yarn composition, something else has been bothering me for a long time:
This yarn contains “10% Donegal”. Just… Donegal.
Last I checked, Donegal was a type of tweed fabric. It doesn’t seem that they’re snipping little bits of fabric and sprinkling them on, or maybe spinning in bits of grass imported from Ireland. This leads to the inevitable conclusion that a yarn containing Donegal…
… is PEOPLE!
(If you don’t believe me, look at the pictures on Wikipedia of Donegal and County Donegal. There is a suspicious lack of people in those photographs, except for a few hapless tourists.)
