A few weeks ago, I told you guys about the Darn Good Yarn of the Month subscription here, and Darn Good Yarn very kindly sent me the March box so that I can give you guys a peek at what you can get for just $10!
See that yarn up there? That is 100g of the most vivid and luxurious 100% mulberry silk yarn that I have EVER seen. EVER.
This box came with one hank of Darn Good Yarn's Recycled Silk Yarn "Lux Adventure" in Turquoise, a gorgeous pendent, AND a free cowl pattern perfect for your spring wardrobe.
So lets talk about the yarn first because that was my absolute favorite part of this little surprise in the mail 🙂 Like I mentioned above, the "Lux Adventure" yarn is 100% silk. Have you ever worked with 100% silk yarn before? If not, do yourself a favor and give it a try! It is slippery soft while acheiving the lovely textured look you see above. And the most fabulous part? It does NOT tangle like other textured or fuzzy yarns. I kid you not...I didn't have this yarn knot up once, even when I pulled out a few stitches. But really-look at that texture!
This yarn sells for $14.99 if you buy it from the Darn Good Yarn website, but if you were a Darn Good Yarn of the Month subscriber you would receive this yarn, pendent AND pattern for less that the cost of the yarn alone ($10 + $4 shipping in U.S.). The yarn is hand spun by woman's co-ops in rural India and is made from recycled sari silk. That means that this yarn is eco-friendly and ethically produced!

Now don't forget, in addition to the yarn I also received a beautiful pendent and a printed pattern! I decided to attach the pendent to my cowl because I LOVE how it looks against the bright colors of the yarn, but you could also use an extra piece of yarn and make a simple necklace out of it too.
The pattern included with this box was well written and literally perfect for the amount of yarn that was sent! It had a crochet AND knit pattern included so that no fiber artist is left out. I will be adding this lovely piece to my spring wardrobe for an extra pop of color.
