You see, I'm really not a Yarn Snob and do believe there is a place for Acrylic in my world!
Such a place is an Acrylic Throw that will suit Mom and Gracie!
Brand: Plymouth Yarn
Yarn Name: Encore
Content: 75% Acrylic 25% Wool
Skein Weight: 100g = 200 yards
Project Plans: Wedded Hearts Throw
Comments: This pattern is from Family Album of Knits. The combination of Cables and Hearts add much interest to this piece and the Encore should make a most usable cozy throw. Hopefully Mom and Gracie will agree.
