My new Jimbo hook is so smooth and combined with this soft yarn, I’ll ever use an acrylic yarn with an aluminum hook again!! Well I can never say never but gosh darn it, this is what crocheting is all about for me; incredible yarn with a wood hook carved from hand, definitely this crocheter’s nirvana.

Fan Stitch Summer Scarf
This yarn is so soft it's an indulgence, like a fine chocolate. If you’re a chocolate lover, and have had Belgian chocolate, it’s hard to buy a Heresy’s at the gas station. I passed up this yarn several times because I didn’t want to buy into the brand name/store because I like supporting the
LYS. (Local Yarn Shops). But then I needed to do a small swatch and this came in a pinch. Alas, to my surprise, this yarn is incredible. It’s Jo-Ann Sensations Dolcetto Yarns which is a wool/cotton blend from their Bellezza Collection made in , 54% Wool, 24% Nylon, 22% Cotton at $4.99 a skein with 131.2 yards. Italy
