April fools & Yes, we find ourselves highly amusing (someone has to)
faythe: omg did you read the yarn harlot's post?
faythe: it's not her post so much, it's the link about yarn made from special duck feathers
faythe: $193 for 25 yeards
faythe: in laceweight
the feathers are smaller than cashmere and super soft
rayleen: that's more expensive than quivit
or however you spell it
It takes a skilled fiber-plucker between six and seven hours to remove all the fibers from one feather;
and it takes approximately 212 feathers (or 1,484 hours) to obtain enough fibers to create one skein of Quackmere Classic.
that's pretty amazing
i'd like to feel it
faythe: yeah me too
rayleen: what could you make with 25 yards??
i guess, maybe a trim?
faythe: yeah, I guess. oh, maybe some baby socks?
but why waste that on a baby??
they plan to make blends
rayleen: i don't know
faythe: OMG you can get a free sample
I HATE APRIL FOOL'S DAY
