Tell me about Marr Haven

PLEASE!!!

I have enough yarn (here and on the way) for 6 or 7 pair of longies for the fall and winter. But nothing on any bulky yarn. I want something that will be nice and thick and really warm for the really cold winter days. Is Marr Haven what I'm looking for? Is it soft? Does it pill? Does it make a nice tight, thick fabric?

It's very nice. It doesn't pill, but it naturally looks kinda pilly. It took me off guard the first time I got it. I wasn't expecting it to look like that. It's durable and soft. I love it for the kids, and I love knitting it up.

Very thick and fluffy, it knits up tight and thick.. here's a close up of a pair of longies I just got this week
Oh, and it does LOOK like it has a couple of pills, but it doesn't really shed like my BFL does. I want to love BFL, but the whole pair of longies kinda look fuzzy after a day's wear. Marr Haven doesn't do that.



Can you see how tight that knit is??

Did you see all that brown in it? I am wanting the carnivale dark....but it might be too much pink. However, if this baby is a girl.....some capris in that for next spring would be lovely....
