Sirdar slinky?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to track down this yarn for a cardigan/jacket knit (it forms the collar of the jacket), but it's really hard to find.

Does anyone know where I can buy it, or where I can find an alternative yarn?

 

There's a link below to the sirdar page for this yarn.

I'm not sure, because the pattern uses 10mm needles for the fur collar but I see from your link that funky fur is knitted on 4mm needles. I'd never use funky fur for anything else so I'm not sure I want to buy it if it wont work :-S

 

I really want to knit the jacket though :lol:

I have thought about that, I can get funky fur from deramores, but I've never used a fake fur (is it called eyelash? I have no idea) yarn before. Wouldn't it look really obvious?

Different brands use different names such as eyelash or funky fur. You could always ipm deramores and send link to Sirdar Slinky and ask them for their advice
