Thanks for all the responses, I have checked with a yarn store but all they
have is a 50/50 blend of nylon and acrylic yarn. I will probably go tomorrow
to check it out, it's a 36 mile from my cave to the other side of the city,
I have other business tomorrow and as the saying "kill to birds with one
stone". I let everyone know how it works.
As Wright wrote it comes in any color you want as long as they are pastel,
although I was told it comes in a dark blue. Will see?
