You may have noticed that I’ve been using this yarn for the majority of my toys. This is primarily because I have a whole lot of it, thanks to my generous mother-in-law. It’s also just a good wool yarn in general—it felts well, it’s not too thin or bulky, and it comes in a nice range of toy-friendly colors. Also, it’s relatively inexpensive.
Unfortunately, I’ve found that it can take a while (a LONG while) for the colors to come back in stock, as I noted back in September when I was frantic for good substitution yarn for the Woodins. Fortunately, there are a lot of great alternatives. But I’m still partial to the Elann yarn, so I recommend that you nab some for yourself while you can!
He’s so fat ‘n festive! I love him.
