Four skeins of Lily Yarn Multi - cotton / silk blend with a braided construction.
It's says on Ravelry that this yarn is a discontinued line, which is probably why this stuff was marked down by 50%. It was soft and pretty and a bargain and who knows when I'll be in Kyoto again?
Two balls of Taiyo - cotton / silk / wool / nylon
This stuff was a little bit on the expensive side, but it feels soft against the skin - not scratchy like Kureyon or Silk Garden.
And finally, four balls of fingering weight whose name and composition are a bit of a mystery.
The ball band information on this one is only written in Japanese. I believe that I've deciphered most of it by comparing it with the bi-lingual information on the Taiyo ball band.
So what is the mystery 50%? And what is the name of the yarn? It definitely feels like it has more than just 10% wool. The name of 50% fibre is not written in kanji, which probably suggests that the fibre is not a traditional natural one. Perhaps rayon? What sort of socks would they turn out to be?
