During the 50% yarn sale on Loops & Threads last week at Michaels, we had several new types of yarn in special for the sale that I had never seen before. One of these was Carmella which was regular $3.99 per skein, $1.99 during the sale, and $1.39 with my employee discount so I had to try it. This is a bulky weight yarn and the label suggests using a size K hook. It is 60% acrylic and 40% nylon and needs to be hand washed and dried flat. It is a combination yarn with variegated color fibers inside a twisted ribbon that is also variegated color. The one pictured is Mocha which is brown, cream, and silvery gray fibers inside a green, silver, and aqua ribbon. It has a bit of a sheen to it for elegance. The skeins are 100g or 3.5 oz and 91 yard/84 meters long.
It is pretty easy to work with despite being a bit chunky and irregular in shape. It make a fairly heavy feeling cloth when worked up. I am making a cowl and 2 skeins was just enough. While the large amount together is pretty, I think it may be more suited to being used as trim on other pieces given the weight and how small the skeins are.
