Today I would like to talk about a Unique Imported yarn I received from Giovanna Imperia Designs. I have been sample knitting for the company and I can’t even describe the amazing yarns they carry, that are imported from Italy and Asia.
Today I want to tell you about Couio yarn.
It is a manmade fiber, 60% Polyurethane, 40% Nylon, which comes in 70 yard skeins for the very reasonable price of $8 a skein. this yarn is a little stiff to work with BUT once you wash and block your piece, it will feel just like suede or leather.
The sample I did for them in this yarn is this men’s tie:
But I think a purse or belt out of this yarn would be amazing! Also if you are a weaver think of the incredible fabric this yarn would make!
Please Visit Giovanna’s site and see for your self! http://giovannaimperia.com/
