With the current resurgence in the popularity of knitting, yarn is showing up in the most unexpected places.

Yarn Sightings

During a recent visit to a home and garden shop, I discovered that they were using yarn instead of ribbon for their gift wrap!

It was the thick and lofty type, much like the yarn I review this week. While the yarn on the packages was undoubtedly acrylic, the one I review is pure merino spun in Italy.

It may be as soft as a baby's skin, but Tahki's bulky Baby is as hefty as a Sumo wrestler. Does the merino pill? We find out!
