Morocco is a magical country with distinct landscapes, cuisine, culture and music. I was lucky enough to visit in 2000. The bizarres were particularly interesting. This yarn captures some of the colors of the spices and foods: saffron, cinnamon, turmeric, hazelnut and the landscape: desert sand, terra cotta, orange-salmon, slate blue, etc.

"Marrakesh" is full of luxury fibers: angora, cashmere, alpaca and silk to name a few. It also contains yarns of cotton, wool, synthetic, nylon and more. Many are novelty yarns. Some of the yarns include a Habu yarn (handspun cotton from Japan), Colinette "Tagliatelle", and Cascade "Venezia." The yarns are from a variety of places, some of which I even bought in New York City, Chicago and Philadelphia.

A new line of Coolclimates yarns, the component yarns are deeply textured and colorful skeins made from many strands of different yarns tied together, often 3 at a time. Most of the yarns are commercial, although some are also handspun. The yarns are often those left over from projects (you know those small amounts of yarn you don't know what to do with?). They are all different kinds of fibers, textures and weights, although uniformly the weight tends to be bulky.

Project ideas:
hat, scarf, cowl, etc
or use as an accent yarn for larger projects
