This is a bump of yarn as opposed to a skein of yarn.
On September 19th, I'll be at Highland Alpaca to teach Tunisian crochet. We will be using worsted weight alpaca yarn to learn.
This bump is from a mini mill that some of us are touring tomorrow. There will be bumps for sale at the Tunisian class. I am going to try out some Tunisian stitches on my S hook on this bump and see what I get.
This "large" yarn is very in and suppliers are making the tools to work with it. There is a shawl being modeled in the vendor fashion show in a previous blog entry. Go back and see if you can spot it.
