mystery yarn from Germany
mystery yarn from Germany

Look! I have actual yarn content!

Of course, it’s a mystery as to what it really is, because this is the yarn that #1 Son brought back from Germany in his guitar case sans ball bands. And let me just repeat, gentle reader, how proud I am of him for going into a yarn shop – not his native habitat at all – and making himself understood and finding sock yarn. A very nice present for his mom, eh? I think he did really good.

The consensus from those who have seen it up close and personal is that it’s probably Trekking. Unless, of course, it isn’t. As I look at this picture now, I can see that the ball in the upper right corner is slightly larger than the other balls. I don’t know if that means it’s a different brand or just a different type? The yarn itself appears to be almost identical. It’s all wool, with maybe some nylon woven in. I wouldn’t call it exactly soft and squishy – not like, say, Dream In Color or Koigu. But it’s not unpleasant and I think it will be nice after washing.

I really like most of the colors – they’re growing on me, I will admit. #1 Son wants the upper right corner ball for a scarf. But the more I look at it… He may get the one in the middle instead. We shall see.

So, what do y’all think this might be? Any guesses? (beyond the obvious sock yarn that is)
