Acrylic, I know, it’s not angora or wool, it’s acrylic yarn. Believe it or not I bought this roving yarn at Michaels. It’s 10 oz for ten bucks, you can’t beat that. The colors are gorgeous and the yarn is soft. I do want to try next time to chain ply it and have the color group a little better. If you are looking for something to spin and don’t want to wait for fluff mail, head down to your local Michaels and get this roving yarn. It’s called Chunky Grande Big! by Loops and Threads.
