Need help identifying these yarns please

kam9581September 16, 2008

Hi Everyone! I'm hoping you can help me identify some yarns that I'm

hoping to pick up. Here's a few links to some photos. I've messaged

both of these people to ask but never heard back from them.

(Look at the 2nd pic down for the 4 yarns)

If you have a second, can you take a peek at these links. And if

you're not sure about the exact yarns posted, could you recommend

yarns that are similar? I'm basically looking for yarns that have

variegated colors and are both chunky & skinny. The more texture the

better I guess.

Thanks!!!

Kim

The ones I looked at looked like they were homespun. Here's
a commercial yarn that has sort of the same idea

or do a google search for thick and thin yarn

I agree with qiviut. Those yarns all look handspun. I think about the 4th one down also looks like it is plied with some type of "Fun Fur" yarn.
