These were a hit at Craftstravaganza so I'm rolling them out again!

This is a big ball of wool and wool-blend yarn scraps of various lengths, all knotted together to make a one-of-a-kind funky item. The colors are bright, light, vivid and fun and blend the random into a crazy cohesion of scrappyness! The tails are meant to stick out on both sides of the finished fabric or be poked through to the front or back. Anything goes! You could use this for free-form knitting too, if stripes aren't your thing.

These are scraps from my personal knitting projects. I use good yarn. No 100% acrylics at all. That said, there could be an acrylic-blend. But if I wouldn't knit with it in the first place, it wouldn't be in the magic scrap ball. There is definitely wool, alpaca, mohair, silk, etc. in the ball. And no fun fur. icky.

The weight is primarily worsted.

Will it felt? Some blends will felt better than others and it could contain a wee bit of super wash. Projects knitted with these scrap balls do "bloom" beautifully after hand washing and a little fluff time in the dryer. The tails get shaggier and the yarns make a lovely halo.

I have included some photos of finished objects made with these scraps. They are of course, not included.

How big? 4 ounces. (at least 200 yards!)

You'll need 4.75 ounces to make the baby sweater pictured so grab a few of your own scraps and tie a few on! The pattern is Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Sweater on Two Needles from the Knitter's Almanac book.

Colorful ball of wool scrap yarn. 4 ounces. 200 yards. Self-striping. Magic ball.
