Nittany Knits

Tuesday, February 27, 2007

Here's my new Tofutsies yarn I purchased in Pittsburgh. Under the crab it tells you what Chitin is. The yarn is 50% Superwash Wool, 25% Soysilk Fibers, 22.5% Cotton, and 2.5% Chitin. For those of us who did not know what Chitin was, the South West Trading Company was kind enough to not make us feel stupid and provided the answer for us. (I'm sure many a local yarn store owner was thankful for this!) "Chitin is fiber from shrimp and crab shells! It's naturally antibacterial!" How cool is that??????

What you can't see in this photo are the other two skeins of sock yarn that are sitting to the left of the Tofutsies yarn. Apparently Miss Margaret did not find them interesting enough to take a picture of. She was too into the crab on the label. Funny, since she doesn't like crab. Wonder what she'll think of knitting it instead of eating it????

Happy Knitting!


  • Interesting. Knitting new pedi socks? ;-)

  • The thing I like best about the TOFUsties is the fact that they seem to be one of the least vegetarian sock yarns about. I must purchase some immediately.
