The "Lisa Ann Cowl And Ear Warmer Set" And A "Chic Sheep Yarn" Review | Posh Pooch Designs

The "Lisa Ann Cowl And Ear Warmer Set" 
And A
 "Chic Sheep Yarn By Marly Bird" Review
Red Heart Yarns just sent me a package of their Brand 
New Yarn, Chic Sheep Yarn By Marly Bird.
I was so excited when I opened up the package.

Now Put aside everything you have ever thought about
 scratchy, itchy, fuzzy and stiff Real Wool Yarn.
This yarn is the Very Opposite of that.
The Yarn is the softest Moreno Wool you will ever 
stitch with, whether you crochet or knit.
 You will absolutely love this yarn.
It is soft and smooth. It has a soft shimmer to it and 
it slides wonderfully across my crochet hook.
It comes in 24 amazing colors.
