I made this over-sized scarf/head wrap when I needed a very simple project to get me through an illness affecting my mental capacities. We'd had several cold snaps during the winter, so I though this project would fill a future need. The first half of the Bunny Paint came from a sale, but I mostly chose it because I knew from a previous project that it would be very warm.
Bunny Paint by Tahki-Stacy Charles, 50% Merino/25% Alpaca/25% Acrylic, comes in 50g/81 yard (75 m) malls. This 20" by 6 foot scarf took 9 balls. I also edged the piece with two rows of single crochet in classic Elite's Montera, a 50/50 llama and wool blend, using 70 g of a 100g skein. The color, #73, is darker than the photos.
I can knit with alpaca, but angora bothers my allergies. Despite the name, there is no bunny in Bunny Paint.
For it's size, the weight of this piece doesn't bother me. it has nice drape. I can wrap it over my head, around my neck, and back over my shoulders. With my high-necked down jacket, this should keep me very cozy. (Scroll down for photo here.)
I do know from a past project that this yarn will pill. I block this piece by stem ironing it into shape on foam blocks. No pilling occurred and, if anything, I had less fuzz after ironing. I haven't tried washing it yet.
I like this yarn well enough to have used it twice, but the pilling would limit where I'd use it.
