Jimmy Beans Wool Big Beanie Bag – May 2016

I switched my subscription from Jimmy Beans Wool’s Beanie Bag to their Big Beanie Bag – a difference of $15 (Bb is $10 monthly, Bbb is $25) but a huge jump in contents.


This month’s Big Beanie Bag included four 48-yard balls of Rowan Softyak DK, a chainette yarn composed of cotton, nylon, and yak down. I adore this yarn and can’t say enough great things about it! I often find wool scratchy, and yak down is just delicious without any scratchiness at all.  The Big Beanie Bag also included a printed pattern for striped fingerless mitts, three Bar Maids samples (Lo-Lo Cuticle Intensive, Lo-Lo Lip Balm, and Lo-Lo Body Bar), and a trial packet of Heel foot cream from the makers of Soak wash – all in a big drawstring bag perfect for toting around a small project.

I chose the Neutrals color palette and the colors are great. They read bluer in the photo than they really are – three grays and a brown. I’m really pleased!

And now, back to the second mitt.
