This yarn is so soft, and the color is absolutely perfect! Great holiday gift to myself!

Do the Doux Scarf

After seeing the sample Doux scarf on display I had to try knitting one. It is made by holding two uniquely hand dyed yarns together, a McIntosh (sock/fingering wt.) together with Delicious (lace weight) to give a nice halo. The color combinations are unbeatable and the yarns feel scrumptious in my hands. So I haven’t even finished this gift scarf yet. However I just picked up
two skeins in cool tones to make a second one. Why? I don’t want this fun project to end! Store employees are so helpful. Service is gracious, you won’t be disappointed at Apple Yarns!

Judy you have made our day with your 5★★★★★ review. Thank you! Andrea
