I've learned about a novelty art yarn called Slub. If I was only allowed 2 words for it I would say that it is Beautifully Crude. It is a technique that come about by mistake. New spinners couldn't get their tension right and created an uneven, lopsided fiber. Now it's made on purpose. This unrefined product gives a really unusual and interesting texture to your knitting. I loved it. I instantly thought I needed to design a Slub Yarn Slouchy and why not go one step further and make the matching cowl. The problem was loom knitting this crazy yarn with both extreme of thickness, way to thin sometimes and way to thick other times.
YOU DON'T HAVE TO USE SLUB YARN - Any Chunky / Thick Thin / Art Yarn Will Work Well.
