Compatible wool to contrast with Wendy frizzante
« on: February 05, 2019, 18:21:32 PM »
I've run out frizzante which is discontinued.
Any ideas of a similar wool which would contrast.  I've made an armchair throw and want to knit a seat cushion cover.
Any suggestions gratefully received.
TIA.

That's a question best asked on Ravelry, but this is the yarn in question (a nylon/rayon/acrylic mix with no actual wool)

Hi,
I'm sorry to seem stupid but I'm really struggling to see how/where to post this question on Ravelry (I am a member).
Can you help please?   (or maybe @Francesca can help me...) :'(

If you're wanting to purchase specifically from someone's stash message the person directly.

I believe you can leave comments on specific yarn entries, so you could do that also.

Or there is a forum with multiple "groups" you can join one of the British based ISO ones and post there.

To post a question on Ravelry - from the home page click on 'forums' in the green bar at the top.
I think everyone has the 'Yarn & Fiber' board.
Just click on 'start a topic'  beside where it says 'Yarn and Fiber'
Give it a title, ask your question and click on the 'start this topic' button.
