12 Collars of Christmas # 6 - "Pomp A Doodle"

Collar # 6 is the "Pop A Doodle Collar"  
What is Pomp a Doodle yarn? It is made by Red Heart Yarn company.
 It is basically a string of pom poms, really soft pompoms, 
that you can crochet on to anything.
100 % polyester, so probably best to hand wash items made with it.
 I hand wash all my furbabies sweaters and hats, 
and then lay them on top of the dryer.

 This is a statement from their webpage concerning the yarn:

Red Heart® Pomp-a-Doodle™     "Fun and super fast, you won't believe how the pom-poms work up to a soft and cuddly fabric. Use Pomp-a-Doodle as an accent with a plain yarn for amazing results! Perfect for fringe and trimwork."

100% polyester , comes in 15 different colors. I found it at Micheals.
