A Good Yarn

This is called the Magic Ball.

There are several different yarns tied together into one ball. Besides the beauty of the yarn, there is the story of it's creation.

This yarn is a product of these women in South Africa. An American woman who lived in South Africa for a period of time started this company as part of a jobs creation program. This yarn now helps to empower women in an area that is plagued by 75% unemployment.

Come on in and see this stuff for yourself. We'll give you the pattern for the scarf, and you can make them up as gifts this year.
