Ok first off, how cute is this button? If you join the Sheepless Yarn Swap, you can adorn this on your site. Interweave is starting the swap as a part of Amy R. Singer’s fabulous wool-free knitting book, No Sheep for You.
From the site:
Participants in the No Sheep for You Secret Pals Skein Swap will receive two skeins of nonwool yarn–one in June and one in July 2007–from their anonymous secret pal; they also mail two nonwool skeins in two months to their assigned pal.
What qualifies as a nonwool skein for this swap? Thankfully there are tons of options now in the wide world of fibers: hemp, linen, cotton, silk, rayon, bamboo, corn, Lyocall, Modal, Seacell, soy fiber yarn, or skeins with any combinations of the above. As long as it is 100 percent nonwool, it qualifies.
